Getting a tank bred mandarin does not guarantee that it will eat prepared foods. I just bought an ORA blue one and have spent the last month or so trying to get it off of pods and eating prepared frozen food. Luckily I have a refugium and a healthy pod population or else she wouldn't have made it I'm sure.

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

+1. Not about having one. About them reverting back to pods. If the ORAs really were fully on prepared foods, then they would be the most popular fish ever.

Yeah, kinda, considering how many of them die each year I guess it is a popular fish. Sad. so beautiful but so hard to raise. I watch my mandy every day and am so glad I had some luck with her.

At the beginning, the ORA ones are on prepared foods. BUT the ORA ones are known to start only eating pods randomly.
