I am a notoriously negative person. :-( just who I am. probably why I'm freaking out about the scooter. I'm trying to be more peppy and optimistic. been trying for 30 years LOL

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

Lol. I always say, 'It will happen if it's meant to.' but inside I'm thinking, 'Yeah, right. This'll never work!' and sometimes I'm right about either one. Lol.

Good luck today!! Are they going to want to hold the fish at all since they are just coming in today?? Mine always holds them for at least 24 hours, but he lets me buy them so the one I want doesn't get sold.

I was thinking about that too. not sure I wanna move the fish right away after it's been brought in. I believe the fish supplier is local so they may not have had a rough transport. I really hope she comes through for me. If not today then I;m ordering online. I;m tired of waiting for fish all the time. Those darn B&w's took forever to get. lol

I've actually bought fish right off the truck and they have done great. Then they don't have to acclimate to one new tank at fish store and then turn around and do it again in my tank. I just examined them real good in the bag and then taken them right home. Problem is you don't get to see them eat. Also got the guy to knock a little money off the price since they weren't providing any care.

Oh I forgot to comment, the blenny and scooter will get along just fine since the scooter is really a dragonette. Like i just said in that other post, other fish tend to leave the mandarins and scooter blennys alone completely. They also have a protective poisonous coat that keeps them from being eaten by things like the lion fish and protects from disease (the mandarins do for sure..don't know about the scooters)

Wow the platinum ones are amazing! We saw a rare 'naked clown' at our LFS a week ago...pure orange! The black ones are super cute as well...and the price is a little more reasonable!
