How to pair Starry Blennies


New member
I am very sad to say one of my starry Blennies died suddenly. I had a pair for about 6 months (from DD), they spawned and laid eggs very frequently and seemed in perfect health, then the larger one (female?) suddenly died. I believe it was the female because the other one would periodically turn white, which I think is a male behavior.

I would really like to have another pair. Can someone provide guidance on how to identify and add another female?

Thank you.

I've asked this question too but didn't get any help. Having a pair yourself, were there any noticeable physical differences other than size? They may be like gobies and you would just need a smaller specimen and use an acclimation box but please wait for others before taking my advice.

The fungus is among us.
There are any number of reef fish species that can't be sexed visually. Including, I believe, blennies.
