    Certain fish will be difficult to quarantine. Copperbands, mandarins and even lawnmower Blennies.

    Due to already being tricky eaters. But it is a good time to teach it to take frozen food. Slowly release some food with a syringe close to it, and close to the rock. It will hopefully understand the connection quickly between the syringe and food coming. Not too much food in one go, else it just go to waste, fouling the water conditions in your quarantine.

    I got a Lawnmover Blennie in quarantine at the moment. But I prepared my QT. I got all the sides covered in algae. Nice green grass from side to side. Blennie got enough to eat. I can see the little round cleared marks on the glass. Teaching him to eat flakes.
