Red Spotted Blenny-Reef Safe?


New member
Thinking about adding a Red Spotted Blenny (Istiblennius chrysospilos) to my tank. I really like these guys...BUT... I am worried that they may nip/damage some of my corals. Tank is full of soft, juicy acans and blastos, also some SPS. I have read too much conflicting information on these guys. Some say they will nip corals and others say not a problem. I do NOT want to risk my corals at all. Anyone have experience with these or have info...good or bad.

Red Spotted Blenny (AKA: Orange Spotted Blenny)

Thanks reefers,
