Hahaha aw darn, i wouldnt have been so blunt if i knew he was going to read that! Okay well im going to give him some hope.
A mandarin CAN live a good life in a 30. What you need to do it have an established tank for a few months and make sure that you have lots of pods
in your tank, its what the mandarins eat. Then, you need to find a mandarin that you have seen eat frozen/prepared foods. You will need to go to multiple pet stores and do your reasearch, but a mandrin that eats frozen foods can be found. Then watch the employee feed the mandarin just to be sure that it will eat. Bring him home and he will be eating pods
, but try a variety of foods such as brine, mysis, bloodworms etc. if he doesnt eat you may beed to buy some pods
because it can take months to train them to eat prepared foods. It can be done, and i hope your husband hasnt lost all hope. Show him this
Edit: i hope you still get your 300 g
