Last week I bought a Midas Blenny and it has been doing just fine. Today I noticed she was swimming around aggressively and laying on the sand bed in the corner of tank moving around eratically. Is this normal behavior?

I want to say it turned brown but then back to normal. But was swimming around like she owned the tank. Infact my true percula clown (dominant) who usually runs the tank was moving away from her.

Midas blennies usually turn "brown" / fade in color at lights out and then turn back bright yellow after the lights come on. Many times they will "sleep" or hide out in the bottom of the tank b/c they don't have a "floating mechanism" like other fish.
With that said, I would probably just keep an eye on him. Make sure he has no ich or velvet like spots on him b/c that sometimes will trigger odd behavior in a fish. Midas blennies seem to be pretty resistant to ich, at least in my experience.
