Scooter blenny

Would mysis shrimp alone be a sufficient enough diet for a scooter blenny?

They are hard to keep. If you don't see them eat t our LFS I would go ORA if your heart is set on one. They eat live food like pods. I've tried 3x's and lost them all.

But to answer your question yes that will do IF there trained to eat prepared foods.

I've only had my tank for a little over 4 months and I got my scooter about a month and a half ago. Hops around all day super energetic. Flakes in the morning and frozen at night. Don't see him actually eating but he has to be eating something if he has been alive for that long

I don't know.... Not saying this will happen and I hope it doesn't. But mine lasted a while also and I thought eh... He must be eating something if he made it that long. You'd be surprised how long they can last. I will add my mandarin I doing well and it's been 3 months. But I also added about 10,000 copepods.
