Well thanks for making a profile to comment.
If you havent noticed I am the first one to warn people about mandarins, they are so beautiful yet most die of starvation unless cared for properly. I've had the biocube up a few months but had a sw
tank before that one. I have a total of 7 tanks starting from last year. I've had successful reefs and that has propelled me to buy bigger tanks and keep upgrading.
My rushing into stuff had nothing most liekly to do with the death count in the 125g tank, a sick fish was introduced and I didn't qt. For that, shame on me.
If the mandarin reverts back to pods
I have a supply already in the cube, I keep a fuge for the tank and for in case my scooter dragonet reverts back as well. I had a bit of trouble getting him on prepared foods but that worked out fine so far.
And as a worse case scenario the mandarin can go into the 125g which has an over abundance of pods
Bases are covered I believe, to the best of my ability. Part of the reason I forked over extra cash and waited so long for an ORA one was to give me the best chance at keeping her alive and well.
As for the rest of your post, think what you will.
I believe I have a great knowledge base from all my experiences and am only here to help others. If thats a bad thing well, so be it.
