    Wanting to get some thoughts on the Ember Blenny. I really enjoy fish that bring something special to the tank, and have always heard Blennies do that with personality. That being said I love having a pistol and goby combo, and also a Dragonette is a must have in my tank (240Gal).

    All that being said I wanted to get thoughts from others on how those 3 inparticular would interact. Also curious about the Ember being a good blenny for what I am wanting. My wife really likes the Ember best, but I know the colors can really vary. I would absolutely be buying it from an LFS so I can see first hand what I am getting. Any thoughts on all this are greatly appreciated.

    And feel free to share pics of your Ember or other Blennies

    No experience with Embers in particular but I just picked up a Tail spot Blenny and they do have great personalities.

    He will open his mouth at me when im near the tank and he picks micro algae off the sand and rocks all day long. Cool little dudes.

    An ember blenny will leave the goby and dragonet alone. But you likely won't be able to add any more fish that perch on rocks, such as hawkfish or other blennies.

    Ember blennies are very reclusive the first few weeks. They are also very color variable depending on mood, but periodically putting a mirror against the glass can get a male to show it's best colors.

    Thanks for that info. Luckily I am not really interested in a Hawk fish, and may only want the one blenny. Thanks for the top on color as well.
