Glad to hear the scooter is taking prepared food. I assume that means you are going to try and keep it. What about the YT?
Another reason your theory would not work is that the scooter is basically a dragonette and will quickly deplete your pods
once they are available.
Again I would never recommend a mandarin in anything less than a 75g with a fuge and well establish pods
population. Remember about 98% sold die of starvation. Unfortunaltely LFS
do not educate people enough about them because they will just die in the LFS
tank if not sold quick enough.
Kind of like sharks and probaly should not be in the aquarium trade. Both can be kept, but require a very specific environment.
