Lost my first fish in forever today...

Kinda odd that I've been in and out of the hobby a few times, but I never had a fish really go belly up in my tank. Had some get sick, but rehomed sent them to a friends quarantine to fix them up...or they just never died in my tank.. aside from a blonde naso when I had no idea what I was doing.

Today I lost my bi-color blenny... Blenny Kravitz. Woke up this morning and his was stuck on top of my Acan...breathing heavy hardly moving. I freed him from it, but I must of have been too late...when I got home from work he was gone

:bawl:

Yep... I'd always wanted a bicolor blenny too... I just love the personality of a blenny and he was pretty close to ECU colors.

hahahahahahahaha. I do not mean any malcontent, but your name for the blenny was great! I'm sorry you lost the fish, but that is a great name. I thought I was clever with Langston Blues and a group of puffers named Poofy poof and the puffy bunch. LOL

The wife names everything in the tank. She likes to give them all names of musicians, I've got James Brown the Emerald Crab, a snail named Aretha Franklin, and she named the Mocha clowns Beyonce' and Jay-Z

We figured the bicolor blenny being two colors he needed a bi-racial name (please don't take offense to that, its just playing) so Lenny Kravitz came to mind...but then she screamed "BLENNY KRAVITZ"

Been a rough 24 hours here though, just got the call this morning that her parents Husky passed last night as well. I feel absolutely horrible right now.

sorry about Blenny's passing. I name my fish too. I think people who do really love their fish. I also talk to them when I'm feeding or doing water changes or just passing by.

Thanks everyone. I decided to pick up another Blenny today. Went out to Down Under and grabbed a lawnmower blenny. Still working on a name for him...

He's certainly living up to the name lawn mower, I've got some hair algae and as soon as he hit the tank he went to town.

I'm thinking of calling him Blenny Kilmister to stay with the musical theme... since Lemmy Kilmister is the singer of Motorhead...

Not to mention... Lawnmower blennies are kinda..ohmm...fugly to an extent and Lemmy looks like this:




Still final say is always up to Rachel so we'll see what she thinks he look like

Well...now I'm at wits end... came home to the lawnmower DOA today...I noticed a little aggression towards him from my Mocha clowns yesterday and I think they may be the culprits.

All my parameters are in check, every coral is open and happy as heck, and the clowns are as well... only thing I really can think of is the clown attacking.
