    I have an established Starry Blenny in my 120g tank. If I add a few Barnacle Blennies will they get along? A search is showing mixed results. I figure the Barnacle blennies will stay in their hole most of the time and not have much to do with the Starry but hoping someone has first hand experience. Thanks.

    120 gallons is more than enough space for them all to coexist. The barnacles will find homes small enough that the starry won't be able to harass them too much.

    They’ll be fine in a tank that big...
    Definitely grab a few barnacle blennies, that way you’ll be able to truly appreciate their unique behavior versus having one that will get lost in the 120

    And set up a porous rock close to the front of the tank and release your BB’s close to it.
    Better yet, place the rock in their acclimation bucket and let them scurry into it....
    Then you can simply take the rock and place it into your system
