The Pink Scooter Blenny is also referred to as the Starry
Dragonet or Stellate Dragonet. Its body is a mottling of red and white with
large dark spots. The male usually has brighter colors and a larger dorsal fin.
It prefers a reef aquarium of 30 gallons or larger with
lots of live rock to hide in and graze from. The substrate should be live sand
and the aquarium should have docile inhabitants. More than one of its species
may be kept, and it is best to introduce them all to the tank at the same time.
The ratio should be 2 or 3 females per male. A 55 gallon or larger aquarium is
required if more than one male is to be kept.
The Pink Scooter Blenny diet should consist of brine
shrimp, bloodworms and glassworms, and small invertebrates. They are
slow-moving, deliberate feeders and should not have to compete for their food.
