Be careful though, you don't want him to revert back to pods only.

I wish i could have one

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

From what I hear a pod only eating mandarin can eat thousands a day. But you say yours eats pellets or frozne so you should be fine. Just make sure he eats once he's settled in.

A thousand a day? That would be a pile of pods bigger than the fish itself. They eat a lot of pods and I am sure you will do better with one that will eat frozen foods. I have given up on them as I find them too much trouble to keep. I like fish I can raise for 10 years or more and Mandarins rarely last me a year or two in a heavily pod infested 300 gallon reef.

Would be interested from the forum; how long have you kept a Mandarin alive?
