Could i have a algae blenny? I have been interested in one for a while now but I have seen that they can grow HUGE, which is why I have not gotten one.
Oh crap, not too far from where I had my place. Love your neighborhood alot. Right near the diner (oh what's it's real name???) anyway, the freakin' Seinfeld diner LOL! The one that has literally the worst service out of any diner that I've ever been to (and I love diners).
regarding the Blenny. I don't see any reason not to house the Blenny. Alot of aquarists (beginners and Advanced aquarists alike) have a misconception about "fish size vs. tank size" Let's use the Blenny for example...... MOST (everyone see that I used the word "most") ...most fish species will grow to a size and at a growth rate comparable to the size to their environment. Hence "Quite a few" lol fish species will grow larger and larger faster, in a 50 gal as opposed to a 14 gal. (and actually such is with most forms of life....example: Bonsai tree). A Queen Angel will grow much faster and much larger in the wild as opposed to growing up in even a, let's say, 500 gal aquarium. The next point is, some aquarists don't understand that if a fish is "getting to big for its britches", the move the darn thing out of that particular environment and give it a larger home else where...simple. There's nothing cruel or unethical about it.
So, those points stated, the Blenny should be absolutely fine for quite some time!! Have fun with him/her!
