tank needed to sustain a scooter dragonet

hello everyone, i saw the tinyest scooter blenny(dragonet) at my lfs the other day. I have always wanted a mandarin but realize I cannot sustain one. Are red scooter dragonets just as hard to feed? Can my 35 long with 40 lbs of rock sustain one if he will not eat prepared? And lastly, I have a twinspot goby in there too, will they fight?

IMO if you can sustain a TSG, you can sustain a scooter. Unlike a mandarin that needs a healthy pod population, the scooter will scavange around the tank sifting through the sand and substrate for food. They're alot of fun. I have one in my tank.

i would highly suggest against a scooter. I am having the hardest time right now and the chances are that my scooter will starve. I am trying everything I can but it may still happen.

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

Carey, what's wrong with your scooter? How is he acting? Which tank do you have him in?

he is in my brand new 29g biocube. He was my first fish. he is very active, he's doing nothing but eating it seems. lol
I just dumped a bag of pods in for him so he won't starve in the next day or so at least.
