M. reticulatus - Coral Sea Fang blenny: Id be game at attempting to raise these guys if it was possible to get a pair of adults, though I am hazard to add my vote given that I doubt I can keep any other pairing but the histrio or the other blenny species. Have done so but I reserve the right to opt out due to tank size concerns.

Does this mean now i have to find space for coral gobies.

Does anyone know what the best thing to get them spawning is?

Some acros for them to rub all the skin off? this will be very interesting, given the limited information on the little suckers. On the bright side though, at least a small tank will seem like an ocean =)

Just get rid of some grammas... I could.. look after them! :poke:

(Also, if you combine both Meiacanthus sp in the poll, they got the same votes as Gobiodon sp.)

That cant be too hard surely, how much will the little buggers need? :roflmao:

I have heard of Gobiodon spawning on the concave side of a heater suction cup, so thats what I will be trying. Im thinking of attaching one to a dead acro skeleton. Maybe a nive rounded acro, with plenty of branches for females/males to escape aggression.

Dont know about diet. Rod Connock had some laying on just the usual frozen/dry food diet.

I might sling some old acro skeletons in the clownfish pair tanks and throw a pair of coral gobies in each.

Then i will need ss rotifers, how am i goign to keep those seperate. Hmmm this isnt sounding so easy.

Damien we (read you) need to get us a specific forum to discuss this stuff in. Haha or we have to go hassle the coral people to find out the fastest way to kill a good acro for fish to spawn on!!!

I know we could evaluate the value of dead blue versus bright yellow acros, get all the best stuff kill it for evaluation purposes only of course!!!

Could we choose a "runner up" from the three with 14% of the poll? Those fang blennies seem pretty popular.

I know this doesn't really help and complicates things a bit, but interesting to group the voting:

Meiacanthus - 5
Assessor - 3
Pictichromis - 4
Gobiodon - 5
Seahorses / pipe fish - 4

Seems a pretty even spread.

But in the end, doesn't matter too much, genus has been decided on, run with that :)

I think we should standardise as much as is possible to validate information on spawning etc.

Even using similar bits of dead acro would allow people to figure out average time to spawn for pairs.

Awesome! I can put these guys in my tank without problems so count me in! :D Just wondering, I currently have one yellow one already in the tank, is it best to remove him and add a few at once or would they be ok if added after he has already established territory of the tank?

well, we had 21 votes and now have 11 names......HELLO ;)

shouldnt be a problem in regards to tank size for most and it will be well worth the effort. :thumbsup:
