I know this first hand because the bi-color is so much trouble in my tank. The problem it's such a beautiful and fun fish and that is the only reason I put up with it.

another thing is you can either keep a wrasse or a mandarin. They compete for the same food and the wrasse with win every time and the mandarin will "DIE".

Thank you thincat... I am trying to make a tank that will be that success story on the net "over all that is BS" but I plan on trying some things I will be adding slowly and my LFS will take back fish if my compatibility doesn't work (as long as they survive till they sell it) at full price. (I am buying lots of fish from them) I was asking about order of introduction and needing to be introduced at the same time... I will try to introduce the dotty's as close together as the tank will allow.

Not with two mandarins and two wrasses and some Dottybacks.

I think Ora is cranking out AQ grown Mandarins to the market will be flooded with homegrown Mandarins soon. Which is a good thing because that is one awesome fish.

Definately. Plus they will probably take prepared foods. Bonus.

Finally here are some pictures of my DIY rocks





I like lots of hiding places... this isn't necessarily how I'm going to set it up in my tank. The size of the rock pile is approximately 2'6" wide, 2' deep, and 2' high.
