My concern is the scooter. Theyre not actually blennies. Theyre dragonets. So you need tons of pods.

Tons of them. They can wipe out a small aquarium pretty quickly. If you religiously added live pods, you could be okay.

My scooter eats brine shrimp and loves it! Get one they're definitely fun to watch around the tank. Get one that eats prepared at the lfs or train the little one in a breeder box. Not as hard as people think unless I'm just lucky, which I doubt. I attached a pic of my little guy; he's nice and chubby always a showman.

No where near that many. But a good refugium and keeping the pod population high enough to see them at night with a flashlight is what you're shooting for.

Are there an easy to care for dragonets? That might be a good sub for the scooter.

Some people have good luck with dragonettes, but many, many don't. This forum is full of threads discussing this very topic. Some can be taught to eat regular food, but most exist on pods. They are very slow hunters, so the conditions need to be right for them to thrive. Not the easiest fish to keep. Getting a fat one from the LFS and a good pod population is the first place to start.

I believe they can be trained some easier than others. You just have to be willing to spend a few day to a few months training them.
