Red SCOOTER Blenny
The Red Wine Scooter Blenny, or Red Dragonet Blenny, sifts through sand to feed, so in an aquarium food must be introduced to the substrate. It is best to introduce this fish when it is small in order to acclimate it to tank conditions. The Scooter Blenny will grow to five inches. The Dragonets move slow and are not great at competing for food, so make sure they can get to some food before the tankmates eat it. Dragonets are actually a separate family from Gobies. The difference between Dragonets and Gobies is slight, Dragonets have longer ventral fins.
