Bi-Color Blenny Question

So I have an adult Bi-color blenny in my reef tank and I caught another blenny of somekind at the beach today. Can I have both in the same tank or will there be a war?
Life is short live for the moment.

Bicolors can become very territorial towards any smaller or passive fish added after them but every fish is different. I had one that tolerated the addition of a rainford's goby (small and passive fish) in a small 12 gallon tank with no problem but have also seen them harrass new fish even in bigger tanks.

I would try to ID the new fish if you can.
Political correctness, a term first used by Joseph Stalin, has trivialized, sanitized and homogenized America, transforming us into a nation of chain establishments and chain people.

I think they'll fight, too. Unless your aquascaping provides many caves and rockwork.

Bi-Colors are one of the more agressive blennies out there.. they'll even take a nip at you when they feel like it.. Had one when I first started reefing years ago...
