Thread: New fish!!!

  1. Default New fish!!!


    0 Not allowed!
    I got a flame angel and a scooter blenny this weekend. The blenny is adorable. Everything I read about what they eat is conflicting. I wrapped algae around a rock and tonite I will feed some mysis shrimp. So far the algae goes over but flake food is ignored. Will the blenny eat prepared food or only what he finds in the substrate?

    What are your tank specs?

    Over 80% of all scooter blennies (more accurately known as a scooter dragonet) will die in the first 6 months with fewer than 10% surviving a full 12 months.

    They have the same dietary requirements as mandarin fish (Synchiropus splendidus) requiring live copepods for adequate nutrition. You will need about 70-100lbs of established live rock (12+ months old) in order to sustain a healthy copepod population

    I would add that multiple refugiums are very helpful in continuing to provide copepod and naupili to the tank.

    Not sure where you get your info, but I've read they are pretty hardy. He was really chowing down on the mysis shrimp last nite. I have a 54g w/@ 60 lbs live rock and live sand substrate. Protien skimmer and also a emporer 400 just cuz I can, it also helps as I am nearing the end of diatom stage. I stopped rinsing the filter so often cuz when I pull them out they are teeming with copepods.

    He is right them about if they do not accept prepared/frozen foods. If they do accept prepared/frozen foods they are quite hardy.

    I believe we are all still waiting on some pictures.
    Stock the tank you have, not the tank you plan to have. Always have and use patience.
