Be prepared - they usually don't make it without a refugium.

I've tried the scooter blennies ( also in the same family) and although they will eat shrimps, they tend to starve to death, even with a full belly.

Best of luck and you might consider getting that refugium set up sooner.

We've had a scooter blenny for over a year and he eats the same thing as everyone else. our mandarin eats pods and occasionally the other foods too. Even a hob filter filled with 1" sand and lr rubble will make a good fuge till you get a bigger one.
