I love everything about it exept the red scooter blenny. It is quite likely it will die in there. Scooters have the same requirements as mandarinfish. Look around for stuff about mandarins and you'll see what I mean.

thanks crazyclown!! yeah..i love everything too and i didnt realise how difficult it would be to keep a scooter!! i should have done my own research before listening to my lfs guy!! guess they just want ur money! since the scooter picks up crap from rocks and gravel i thought he would be a cleaner fish too!!

moral of the story....never trust someone in buisness and looking for money!!
