We brought our Scooter Blenny home Last Monday, after a 3 1/2 week QT at the LFS
(My wife's best friend owns it) and she hasn't been seen after we went to bed. LFS
said that if we haven't seen her by Friday night to search the tank that she might have jamed herself in a crannie. We've searched the tank, the over flow, the refug. (incase she was hiding in the micro-algae when my wife weeded the tank), Even in the plastic feather duster rock, but still no Blenny. Not even a skull. I researched them before I brought it. I know that they need plenty of pods
and mostly eat live foods, which is not a problem my tanks full of them. It was eating frozen food when we got it. I didn't see anywhere that they burrow in sand. Does anyone know if they do?
Water prams were with in correct ranges both before she vanished and after.
This is our stuff.
