Here we go! Shots of the first guy, the scooter blenny. i also wanted some opinions on the shells I have in the last picture. I was thinking on putting some in the cube for decoration, would that be cheesy ya think? They are HUGE, thats why i showed the soda can so you can see how big they are.

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

Hey, that's the same fish I had said I wanted in my cube but got a big nono! Hmm. But oh well.

It is amazingly cute. Thank you for the pictures. The populace is happy.

I'd say the shells would be fine, but get a second opinion on that.

Well he's precious! The shells are really cool, but IMHO I think they would look strange in the tank...I think smaller ones would be better...something that your hermit crab can use...jmo! But I think your tank will look great no matter what!

You got a nono because the scooters are in the same family as the mandarin. They typically only eat pods. They tend to be just as hard to keep as mandarins. They need the space for the pods.

Hopefully your guy is eating prepared.

Yeah. I know. I wasn't saying that I wanted to get one. My stocking wouldn't allow for it either.

I just fed him and he's eating food out of the sand. But he is also eating pods too I think. He's on my lr now.

Are you telling me I'm in the same predictament as if I had gotten a mandarin?
