    Hi everybody,
    My blenney has taken a liking to sitting on my corals mostly the pagoda cup and a red mushroom I just recently got.
    Is this bad for the coral? If so how do you get him to stop?
    Thanks for any help!

    Most Blenny's will sit were they want and move on when they want. I'm not sure if they do any damage but I would think not. My bicolour usually sits on a PH or in a hole. but I had a lined blenny that would sit right on top of a clam. The clam never showed any signs of stress and would fully extend it's mantel even with the blenny on top.
