Red Scooter Dragonet



The Red Scooter Dragonet is also known as the Starry Dragonet or Stellate Dragonet. The body of the fish is a mix of white and red, with dark spots that are large. Males usually have more vivid colors and a bigger dorsal fin. It would prefer a reef tank of 30 gallons or more with plenty of live rocks to hide and graze upon. The substrate should be a live sand bed and the tank must include docile fish. A variety of species could be kept and it is recommended to introduce all of them to the aquarium at the same time. The ratio is 2 to 3 females for every male. A 55 gallon or bigger aquarium is required when there is more than one male. A Red Scooter Dragonet diet should comprise brine shrimp bloodworms and glassworms as well as small invertebrates. They are slow-moving and mindful feeders and do not need to compete for food sources. Are you looking for the most nutritious food source to feed your Dragonettes? We suggest the AlgaGen Tisbe biminiensis. Approximate Purchase Size: Small; 3/4" to 1-1/4" Medium; 1-1/4" to 2-1/2"

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
