Any mandarin owners out there - mine has been in the tank for about a month. The first couple weeks he was all over my rocks (have about 160lbs with plenty of pods
- that's not a problem) picking at food. He even picks at frozen mysis every now and then. But, lately he has found his favorite corner and kind of swims around there all day...sits on the sand, and he only occasionally picks at rocks now.
Do most mandarins spend ALL day looking for food as mine did at first - or do they settle in after consuming so much at first? Mine was pretty skinny when I got him - still kind of is. Just curious if his decreased feeding is normal.
