new blenny and cleaner shrimp

Well, I finally have another fish to join my little O Clown.

He's a smallish lawnmower blenny and I got a cleaner shrimp with him because my wife wanted him.

They're hiding in the pvc in my QT.

Is the cleaner going to be OK in the QT? The LFS said he'll eat pretty much anything, so I hope he won't go hungry.

Given that the cleaner should take care of any external parasites, what kind of QT period should I use for these guys? I've got more confidence in the ability of the main tank to maintain decent parameters.

I would go ahead and add the cleaner to the main. It does not need a qt period like fish.

OK, on your advice, I moved cleaner shrimp to the main tank. He seems happy so far and is already at work

My wife is worried that the blenny (Lenny) will be lonely. I assured her he will be fine.
