Can scooter blennies change colors?
I have a scooter blenny that seems to turn.... well kind of pale when i feed him. It's a bit strange and to be honest worries me a little. Is this normal?
Not to my knowledge do they change colors. I had 2 have them that died about a week to 2 weeks after they were changing to a pail color. Didnt want to worry you, but what does he look like like. Was he thick when you bought him and now hes skinny?
He is a little skinny but i'm in the process of fattening him up and I am quite optimistic. I feed him frozen brine shrimp 2 to 3 times a day and he is eating quite well so i don't think that he will starve.... though it did take me some time before i came about this routine.
The changing color thing seems to be a defence mechanism as it only happens when I feed him and my hand is in the tank. Yesterday i noticed he turned pale during his feeding as well as this morning (this morning it was dramatic and scared me a little) but latter in the day he looked great!
Mine pales at night due it blending in with the substrate it buries itself in. It is very bright at feeding times.
never seen one turn pale.
