    Fake coral

    Mystical scooter blenny.

A pair of mandys are nice and get along fine with scooters. It does seem the browns take to frozen easier tho. I have a...

    Mystical scooter blenny.

    I broach this subject lightly. Draggonets in general are difficult fish to keep. The name is miss leading. Scooter "blenny" is actually a draggonet, along with mandarins. That said, I've owned a fair amount over the years. One common thing imo is the drab common scooters readily accept...

    Starting again

    I agree. Some rock is needed, not only for filtration but to feed your fish. They eat more stuff off it then you would think

    How am I doing?

    Your doing good. The cycle has started. Your salinity is at the high end tho. If your doing a reef tank 1.024-1.026. Fish only 1.020-1.023

    Its a low tank. But also a small tank for sw. Especially with fish in it. Frequent water changes and atleast something along the lines of a marine orbit led light. Kessil would wrk well too, you'd only need 1

    Lion fish

    Ok excellent. Just keep up on your water changes bc lions can be messy. If its eating krill you should have no issues w other foods. You can even try shrimp from the grocery store. Make sure its sw shrimp tho and raw. You may even find some small smelts there aswell
