Interesting. What's the smallest tank you think he could fit in?

If he were the only fish i think he could go into a ten. I think they reach 3.5 inches when fully grown.

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

I guess he's my fave too, I spend sooo much more time, money and attention on him over the others. LOL he is still only eating emerald entree frozen food. I just bought 4 more this past week with no luck. Cyclopeez, plankton, minced clam, mysis, brine, baby, brine and about 6 or 7 assorted cube packages.
he has cost me over $200 if you count the food and pod tank. Which by the way seems to be cycled now. Finally...

I have seen just a few larger pods on the rocks but the smaller ones are starting to appear on the glass.

And I have actively been trying to get a picture of the scooter with his sailfin thing up, he is such a tease. But I'll get him eventually....

That's a lot of $$ you've spent on this little fish! But it's worth it as long as he is happy and fat, isn't it? Is there any reason you don't feed him emerald entree only if he doesn't like anything else? Oh btw, is it a he or a she??
I'll be waiting for that pic with his fin!

When I set up my big tank (whenever that happens!) I'm gonna try a mandarin - of course not before the tank matures enough!
Are you still considering one for your 125g?

The emerald entree isnt' very high protein, its like 6.2% or something like that. I;d like to try baby mysis but can only find it online and I'm not overnighting fish food. lol

Yeah, I think I'm gonna go for an ORA mandarin. My LFS has them for $40. I'm hoping to get a refugium sump for the big tank, so I'll take everything outta the pod tank and put it in there. Not sure how long I'll wait but I think it will be a month or two at least.
