New scooter dragonet

I guys I just got a new scooter dragonet. I no and have read on the Internet that they are hard to keep due to the fact of their dietary requirements but I thought I may have a chance with this one as at the pet shop he was already eating frozen brine shrimp

I've lost mine about a week ago. Too bad. He was a funny guy to watch.

i think mandarins are the hard ones to keep my scotter is chubby and knew to eat frozen food after about 3 days of being in my tank. I have a small fuge that i think gives him snacks through out the day but he knows when its time to eat and goes to the same spot in the tank ready for me to squirt in some food. mine eats brine, mysis, cyclops

Took me almost a month to get my scooter on frozen. :-( But now he eats almost anything frozen I put in the tank. Try the brine and then move up to mysis and bloodworms, mine loves those things.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

How do you guys feed yours. I put in half a block of frozen brine shrimp and my clowns broke it up and it went everywhere except I don't no if he at any. How do yous feed them and how do you think I should feed mine

I use a turkey baster to shoot the food right to the dragonets. works like a charm

When I feed my tank, I cut a frozen cube in half and thaw it a tad in the tank. I keep ahold of it and just put it infront of my powerhead and there is shrimp everywhere. I get a nice frenzy going off of it as I put my flake/pellet in shortly before. Keeping ahold of it gives me a chance to keep ahold of some of the mysis to hand feed my duncan.
