I have a Synchiropus splendidus in a 20 gallon nano reef, have trained him to come eat pellets twice daily with my clowns. He eats well and is gaining weight normally.

I am pretty sure that my scooter blennies were mating just now. I didn't think that they were getting along but i guess i was wrong.

I like to know where our inhabitants reside in the tank at night. The blenny was hard to find. It would just disappear. One of the residents moved a small rock into the corner. The cleaner shrimp dug blenny out of the sand in that corner. Blenny didn't move. Thought it was dead from rock. Tried to take out blenny but it swam away. Huh, Wonder if blennies play possum! BTW blenny is my fav.

I like watching the scooter blennys shoot across the surface. my dad has a 240 litre tank and it is great and i love waching it. they are very active in the day. they get along with the other fish; a yellow tang, 2 green chromis, 2 humbugs, and 2 damsels. they are so awesome. by jon age 11

I have a mandarin and a scooter in a 36 gallon hex. I was told these are two of the toughest to keep but for me they have been just easy happy go lucky fish :). I dont believe the 75 pound rock rule for I only have about 35 in mine along with the live sand and the dragonets are doing great. I add a 1/2 teaspoon of fresh plankton every morning. The mandarins are beautiful fish! I wish they got bigger than 4 inches :( The scooter is really great to watch as he glides across everything.

My little scooter jumped ship while keeping him in my HOB refugium. I suggest keeping a top on the tank with these fellows unless you want to find a body on the floor :(. Never expected it to do that.

I have 8 Scooter Blennies. I had theam for 4 months. they are really active and love to eat worms that swim all over the live rock and the live sand. 7 of theam are 1-1/2 inches long and the biggest one is 2-3 inches. I love this fish and I recommend that you should buy this fish.

How to pick a male and female pairs of scooter blennies: Look at the folded fin before its dorsal fin much like a bottom mast on a sailboat with the sails down. The male will have a longer mast past the beginning of his dorsal fin. This flag fin is impressive when he raises it or opens it in front of the female! Food they like which i discovered by accident: My male eats formula 1 marine pellets which i feed my flame angel. I drop 5-7 pellets for him everyday on the sand which he picks up one by one as he goes around sifting the LS. The female won't eat it though. One day when i was feeding my arrow crab, cleaner, fire and peppermint shrimp with small pieces of fish and shrimp, she went after the piece of fresh shrimp on my grabber. She really tore into it! Now that's what i give them daily besides what they eat in my tank with 70lbs LR & 35lbs LS. I don't know why they're considered intermediate when they're so adaptable, hardy and seem easy to care for.
