Unfortunately, the blinker, beehive, loaf, and glider appear so far apart that a single glider destroying all of them would seem very hard to find, even before it stabelized.

The closest I have (so far) is a three-glider cleanup for a nine-glider synthesis, which would, until but five days ago, be a new record :

A two-glider cleanup can be found in a few minutes with the Seeds of Destruction Game. Looks like that will at best only tie with the previous record. On the other hand, it allows for the possibility of a construction at the edge of its reaction envelope (unless the octomino causes trouble there -- I haven't checked):

Another one of my hauls has just produced a second candlefrobra! It hasn't been committed yet though.

Thanks for letting me know. This is fixed in the next LifeViewer build all will appear in due course.

I wouldn't be too sure about the synthesis cost yet -- the excitement starts at T=12, and a dozen ticks is plenty of time after the Big Bang for familiar objects to appear. In fact, the first constellations (the traffic lights) have come and gone already.

This is a third new pufferfish construction mechanism. The first soup started directly from a B-heptomino pair, whereas the second modified a pi pair. This new one also hits a simple pi pair with various sparks, but the first interaction is a couple of ticks later -- it might be useful having that extra time.

Four gliders to directly build the pi pair would leave ten gliders to accomplish the nudges at T= 15, 21 and 29, and add the blinker at T=24. Not likely, I guess, but not necessarily a lost cause either.

Anyway, it's nice to see a pufferfish show up in the Catagolue. An appearance in an asymmetric soup would be nice, but that will probably require the spontaneous appearance of a fairly large symmetrical region. At least, all the known constructions seem to need an improbable number of matching mirror-image adjustments.

Large symmetrical areas seem to develop most often early in a soup's evolution -- see for example A for awesome's 40-cell still life soup. I wonder what percentage of asymmetric soups end up symmetrical? Not counting vanishing soups, I suppose, but that would be kind of an entertaining collection also!

I guess you would call the new p3 on catagolue a "trans-longboat down and long hook eating tub". Anyway, it has an easy synthesis, probably 8 gliders, but I can't be bothered to actually staple the recipe together to check if the Pi and HF predecessor can be made with some 2-glider recipes.
