To my knowledge, just about all fish can get ich. I believe there are a few that can't, but these are not sold in the aquarium trade anyway. You need to QT him just as you would any fish.

BTW, Scooter Bleenys are infact Dragonet fish. They will need a constant supply of infauna from the sand bed to survive. If you have a DSB, they will destroy it.

I doubt they will destroy a DSB, rather I would say a mandarin (first cousin to the scooter) should not be attempted without one. Scooters will not dig through the sand bed, only pick from the top.

Ahh, I was confusing the entire Dragonet's with the darn Mandarin then. Thx for the clarification Kevin.

So I should not have a problem with him in my tank??? I only have a 2-3" sand bed.. From what I was reading is that It should be fine and accepts prepared foods..

Well I just fed him in the QT tank and he seems to like eating frozen Brine Shrimp So the LFS was right about him accepting prepared foods.. So thats a good thing.. At least they are a bit smart lol.. Since he is eating Frozen brine is there anything else that I need to worry about..


TIA,
James
