    I was given a saltwater aquarium about a week ago. One of the fish in it is a Occellated Dragonet also called Scooter Dragonet and Scooter Blenny. They remind me of various species of Sculpin.

    These are fairly common. Usually need established rock that has lots of periphyton on it, which will grow lots of pods for food.

    Thanks for the answer. I am feeding the fish frozen clam and frozen salmon (thawed). "He" seems to be eating it.:thumbsup:

    I have one, He will take frozen brine and mysis. I did nothing special to get him to eat frozen, he just did it himself. Cute fish to watch swim around. Love the little turtle eyes

    The Occelated Dragonet is eating everything now. Deer heart, clam meat, salmon, cooked shrimp, raw shrimp and commercial fish food.
