Scooter Red Blenny (Synchiropus stellatus)

The Scooter Red Blenny or Synchiropus stellatus has the typical elongated Blenny shape with a blotchy red and white coloration throughout their body. The male is normally a bit brighter than the female, and has a larger dorsal fin. This species of Blenny can breed in an aquarium without too much problem, but is considered to be difficult to care for. You can check out the Scooter Red Blenny's mating ritual in the video below...

Also known as the Starry Dragonet and the Stellate Dragonet, this type of salt water fish can be kept in an aquariumof at least 30 gallons. These fish are carnivores that should be fed brine shrimp, bloodworms and glassworms, and small invertebrates. It is also a MUST that they have live rock to graze on and plenty of hiding spots.
Be careful, don't put them with too aggressive feeders as they will not compete for their food and may starve to death. Water conditions in the tank should be as follows, 72-78° F, dKH 8-12, pH 8.1-8.4, and sg 1.020-1.025.
