I was wondering how hard it is to take care of this fish. i have a 29 gallon tank with 41 pounds of LR & 4in DSB. I really love these fish but want to make sure i can take care of it properly. Thanks.

They are very easy to take care of. It will go around eating things off of the live rock and sand and it will also eat some frozen brine shrimp. I had a scooter blenny a firefish gobey and a percula clown and they all got together just fine. Its a pretty neet peaceful fish, good luck.

IMO scooter blennies are harder to take care of than you think. They need to be fed more than once a day and most only eat mysis shrimp. JMO

Okay I'm confused here. I was told by my LFS that in a established tank with alot of LR they were pretty easy to care for. I have had mine for 4 months and no problem. Now my question is do they eat the detrivores from your LS. I sure hope not. Anyone know for sure.
