    My 55g tank has been set up for nearly 6 months now. Currently I have 6 pieces of life rock. I've been thinking of getting a beautiful mandarin goby, but wondering if it will eat or fight my scooter blenny? How hard are mandarins to take care of? Any help is appreciated!

    So I'm actually kinda freaked out. I'm trying to stay calm as I know it's a rookie mistake to freak out over missing fish or anything like that but I've never not seen my scooter for less than 2 seconds. He's ALWAYS doing something visible and never stays still ! He's healthy and fine he eats...

    Well I've finally got things settled, and here is an update. I re-did my copepod culture with Tisbe Copepods, I removed the sandbed completely so only the copepod condos are in there and I added a airstone for arreation. And I got a 200ml bottle of phytoplankton for their food, I'm feeding 2...

    So I was given a Scooter Blenny(Scuttle Butt) a little over a week ago and didn't realize they ate primarily copepods until after I got home. so I bought some tigger pods and put them in after the first day and have since set up a copepod breeding tank but am waiting for the pods I ordered to...

    So I've had a pod culture and scooter blenny for a while, and I've been moving copepod condos back and fourth from the tanks to feed him, although his main source of food right now is live brine shrimp babies and frozen mysis shrimp. I've been spot feeding him every morning and night. Currently...

    Hi, I'm creating a copepod culture for my scooter blenny and possibly a mandarin wayyyy in the future. As of now I have a regular room-tempature tank set up with nothing in it but a chunk of lr and a sandbed with a light on it. I got a bottle of tiger pods and dumped it in they're all over the...

    Hey everyone. Looking for some advice on the above fish. I have a scooter blenny who is keen on all sorts of frozen foods such as brine shrimp. Obviously his favourite is copepods and I have a 5gallon refugium to harvest these. The only problem is he eats them quicker than I can harvest them...

    Help! All of a sudden, my scooter blenny has stopped moving since morning. He is now breathing heavy and bobbing up and down. He moves teency bits every once in a while. I had him for almost one year, and I do not want him to go. :( Other fish is looking fine. Corals doing well, tank specs all...

    I have a question for anyone who has experience with multiple scooter blennys. I fell in love with the scooter blenny due to their personalities and just that they are a lot of fun to watch. After looking into it, from what I had read it is safe to have more than one in a tank so long as you...

    I keep seeing red scooter blennies at my lfs. After researching l, I discovered they're mislabeled and actually a dragonette. Do manderin dragonette feeding habits apply? guy at the store says they're super easy, and eat fozen and flake readily. They do go crazy when food gets dropped in the...

    I've recently acquired a goby/pistol shrimp pair to be picked up. However; I have a very slow scooter blenny that scoots along slowly - as they do. I'm not quite sure how these little buggers have been able to live for as long as they do, considering how slow they move. My big concern is the...

    My tank has been set up for just over a year and a scooter blenny was one of my first fish - he was always active and ate well. He stopped eating, got a little skinny and died. No other issues in tank. I bought another and it died within a week - now, granted, he was small and perhaps fragile...

Its tankmates consist of: 2 firefish gobies 2 ocellaris clowns 2 green chromis 1 yellow damsel 1 yellow eyed kole tang (the newest addition...

    Well, Ive had this Scooter Blenny for over 3 mos now, and I was stupid to have gotten him in the first place. I assumed they ate flakes/brine/mysis and didnt know about Copepods. Upon researching after I got him, I found they need a older cycled tank with MANY copepods for them to live off of...

    So something strange is happening in my GFs 29g biocube, both her cleaner shrimps were found dead today and her scooter blenny looks incredibly skinny. I told her to not dose anything (she was adding purple up, magnesium, and 2 drops of iodine per week). We are about to do a 25% water change...
