    Some people were telling me I shouldn't get one in a 35, but I really love this fish. Is a 35 too small? I have copepods. haha

    I have one Eli in my Red Sea Max. I think it would make it unless there's something eating your copepods in competition.

    Well I was gonna do 1 clown, 1 jawfish, and maybe 2 firefish. And shrimp, snails and stuff like that.

    I think you'd be alright with a scooter Eli.They're not as picky about what they eat as a mandrine.Most scooters will take frozen food as quick as they will live.

    eli just make sure its eating frozen foods before you bring it home ask your lfs to feed it for you, there are several species of scooter blennies (dragonettes) and some will not eat prepared foods similar to the mandarin.
