I placed an order one zoa frag and bunch of snails/hermits they all came in dead but they re-shipped at their expense. Granted they didn't notify my when they reship per which was annoying. Everything came in live, although I probably won't order again. Buy local, at least you'll know what you're getting. Snails and hermits are tiny.

What do you mean by overboard? You can order however many inverts you want. They always send a ton of extras too, which is really nice.

Yes alot of my zoas and green star polyps were not shipped on any rock or frag. Also the snails they carry are very very small.

What size tank do you have? The fish stock seems to be a lot at one time. And that mandarin will eat all those pods before you know it.

I agree with Faye, I wouldn't do a mandarin just yet. They need a very well established tank and will go through those pods in probably 10 minutes. They graze all day on pods. I put 2,500 pods in my tank every other week and still lost blenny's etc.


EDIT: if your set on a mandarin look up ORA

I got lucky with my scooter blenny. Got him from Petco as my first fish before I knew anything about them and he eats everything including flakes. Lol. I stick with pods as well though. Mandarins are tougher to train I've heard.
