Description

Please note that the product information displayed is provided by manufacturers, suppliers and other third parties and is not independently verified by Petco.

The Scooter Blenny is a cute, bottom dwelling fish that is perfect for an aquarium with other passive feeders. Scooter Blennies are actually not a blenny at all, but a dragonet (part of the same family as mandarins). These little guys are very active, which is how they got their name by "scooting" across the aquarium. They are reef safe and should be housed in aquariums with rockwork and sand beds because it serves as protection as well as provides a natural food source. The live rock and sand act as a refugee for copepods to breed, which the Scooter Blenny will feed on. They have a small adult size of about 5" and are a great candidate for smaller aquariums. Their bodies are a mottled brown and white with hints of red throughout. The Scooter Blennies are found in the Pacific Ocean inhabiting the sandy areas of reefs and lagoons up to 30 meters of depth.

  • - Add to an aquarium with ample rockwork and a sandy substrate
  • - For continued health, provide a varied diet of small live foods like copepods before switching to a prepared frozen diet
  • - Reef safe
  • - Recommended for the more advanced hobbyist
  • - Needs peaceful tankmates
  • - Minimum tank size: 30 gallons
  • - Approximate selling size: Small 1-1.25"; Medium 1.25-2.25"

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
