I was thinking on moving some rock to look for him, but he had a habit of jamming himself into nooks and crannies so I could easily miss him. While I was there trying to move rock and see the blenny made an appearance. yay. And the candy cane is still going strong. Tank took out the most expensive fish but the cheap ones seem to be fine. Now to keep them that way for a month or so. lol

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

Awesome, glad you found the blenny. That scooter blenny I saw at the website is cool too. Dang there are so many blenny's that are so colorful. I'm still gonna get the Blue Mandarin though. I like it the best.

Start breeding brine shrimp or buying pods then inmate cause chances are it won't eat otherwise. If you have a fuge just provide rubble or whatever for them to breed and take a bunch out come feeding time.

I have not, I have some bloodworms ill try feeding tonight, that is if I can get past the 2 domino damsels and my niger trigger. On a funny note, I tossed a krill in today and let them play with it, my maroon and yellow clown came outta nowhere and just stole it! It made me laugh because once the clown had it, the other fish wouldn't dare try stealing it

I use a turkey baster to put the food down for the scooter. He won't go into the open water for food, he only will eat off the sand or rocks. Guess that's where the pods usually are. Is he thin looking? Mine was just AWFUL thin when I got him but I've managed to fatten him up with alot of attention. i also have to watch my water parameters because I feed 2-3 times a day so the scooter will eat.
