Lawnmower Blenny about to explode?

For the past week my LMB looks super bloated (I'll try to get a pick later on). I've had it for a year, and I've never seen it look like this. No new inhabitants have been introduced in 6 months,...

I still need to upgrade my heating. I was thinking about getting 2 150w or 2 200w to heat my 55 (75 gallon total). I was also thinking about placement. My sump area is a rubbermaid and I don't...

I barely saw mine for the first 2-3 weeks that I had it. It was like an event when it would dart across the front of the tank and then go back into hiding for 2 days. It's typical for them to be...

Mine also regularly hops in and out of my overflow (always on the pod hunt). I use a section of fiberglass screen (pet screen from my local HD) to keep him from getting pulled into the sump.

That hadn't even occurred to me, but you're right. In my area, the 4 lines are usually $50-60, but the 6 lines are $25-30. I think I paid $50 for mine.

At the risk of hijacking... would Would running a canister with LR ruble instead of media be more like a cryptic refugium, or would the turnover be way too high?

I know exactly which piece you mean. I saw it there last weekend, but assumed it was a really big chunk of GSP.

I've had one for a few months, and I love it. Very active, and lots of fun to watch. They are reputed to have a better disposition toward tank mates than the 6 line, and are a bit smaller.

By the way, that tank is a neat concept. Would you mind sharing a few pics of the whole setup (filtration, lighting, etc)? Also, did oyu do anything special to wall mount it?

I haven't been to SWP yet, but Reef Creation is awesome. I'd stay out of Markeims and The Fish Place (just my opinion).

I have a 4 line. They look a bit like a green 6 line, they're smaller, and less aggressive.

They need to be cleaned pretty frequently. Having a handful of them is a real time saver. I rinse mine off pretty thoroughly, then wash 4 of them at once.

It seem like they are closing in an area of the rock that would be ideal for a fish or shrimp to stop and hang out. Do you have anything that might be bothering it?

I use a cannister because my sump and fuge are fairly small. If you have a large enough fuge and sump, I would just get a handful of filter socks.
