Flame / Scarlet Scooter Blenny (Synchiropus sycorax) 

This is a small fish with a large head with top mounted eyes and a small pointed mouth. It has a starry pattern of red and white splotches scattered across its body with bright blue spots on its head. The Red Scooter Blenny, indigenous to the Indian Ocean, can be kept either singly or in groups but usually with only one male, and multiple females. They will also take prepared fish foods, and should be fed a carnivore diet. Red Scooter Blennies will benefit from supplemental feedings of bloodworms, glassworms, and small inverts. It should be noted that the Red Scooter Blenny is incredibly difficult to get to feed on a captive diet so this fish should be reserved for expert aquarists only. Patience is required to get the Red Scooter Blenny to adjust to a captive diet as they are incredibly slow eaters so they are often out competed for food by quicker fish. Due to their small mouths, brine and mysis shrimp are not suitable. Amphipods and copepods are recommended.

 A great addition to your marine salt water aquarium!
