When to move my blenny from QT?

Hi Everyone --

For backgorund, see this thread:

Update: I suppose that the royal gramma got more thrown at it than it could handle, and died today. But the lawnmower blenny I got at the same time (and from the same tank at the LFS), seems to be doing swimmingly. At least, I don't see any spots like those that developed on the gramma, and he is moving around just fine.

Since he's been in QT for a week, yet has gone through the same stresses, how much longer should I leave him in there to be sure he won'y infect the main tank? He's looking pretty lonely ;-)

As usual, many thanks.

PS -- Oh, and I got a better filter for the QT, to replace the lightweight, suction-cup-failing POS I bubble filter I have now. Definitely want to hedge my bet when I get that $50 flame angel next time around ;-)

The setup:
55 gal, CC base with 120# LR
CurrentUSA ORBIT 4x65W PC with moonlights
Seaclone skimmer
Fluval 304 for carbon and LR rubble
couple of MaxiJet-900 PHs
Calcium and Corbonate supplements 2x/week

2 percula clowns | 1 kole tang
1 royal gramma | 1 lawnmower blenny
1 cleaner shrimp | 1 fire shrimp
2 emerald crabs | bunch of snails and hermits

The uninvited:
1 curlyQ anemone | 1 flower anemone
a boatload of fire worms and brittle/banded stars
... and now 100% mantis free!

The best advice I ever got was right here on AA and it's "Nothing GOOD ever happens quickly in a marine aquarium".

Give your fish the fulll 4 week QT starting now. Keep checking your water parameters and you should be fine.
