I'm thinking about picking up a pair of pike blennies. Are they usually disease carriers? I read that they are scaleless so that means you can't prophylactically treat with cupramine if I remember correctly. Any advice?
Have had a few over the years, have one now. Never had a problem with them being disease carriers. From my understanding these are collected certain times of the years due to some difficulties on water conditions where they are found / tides/ clarity etc. I do have some questions about how they are collected, as I have had some problems with this species experiencing cyanide type symptoms a few moths after collection. So buy from someone reputable. Might have trouble finding some, if you know of somwhere let me know, wouldn't mind getting another. DD will have them occaisonally.
