I honestly don't trust a lfs to actually get me a true Ora mandarin and not just get one and tell me it's an Ora. I guess I can ask them to feed it and see how it eats.

Saltwaterfish.com has the ORA target mandarin and a red mandarin right now. I'd keep an eye on their site to see if they throw some up in the near future.

Just keep in mind that even if you purchase an ORA Mandarin, there is still a chance it will only eat pods on arrival, or eventually revert back to only pods in the future, so be certain that you have an established pod population.

I decided to see if I can train a Green mandarin to eat prepfoods first. So I got a large one that looks extremely healthy, and hes fat. I will keep him in his own 25g Tank for awhile to get him to eat. Its an established-ish reef tank then once hes eating well ill move him to my 75g reef. I have gotten scooters to eat without a problem and helped my buddy get his target mandarin to eat. this will be my first Blue mandarin to get to eat. Heres a little Picture of him while he drip acclimates

I agree they are amazing little creatures and hope he does well during our training. I'm going to try to get him to feed out of a feeding station. Something like a short PVC tube with a cap on the back that he will be able to go into and eat away from the other fish.
