I will have to take a few hours to catch up on your threads!! So for now just a quick comment

Beautiful mandarin! Congratulations on finally getting one! I am very happy for you! (and my mandarin is still doing very well in my nano, and shes been in there for a long time, gotta check my photo dates when I get home to figure out exactly how long haha)

Hey kelsey, where have you been? lol Havent seen you in weeks it seems. lol

Glad your guy is still doing well, I'm hoping mine can do the same. She's been eating lightly the prepared food, I've tried mysis and cyclops so far. I still have like 15 different frozen foods left from trying to get the mandarin to eat. lol
I forget, does yours eat prepared or is it on pods?

My blenny has no need toeat anything LOL fat little porker that he is.

I fed her tonight and can't be sure if she ate any cyclops or not. I know she didnt try the mysis, I was watching like a hawk. But the cyclops is so small and tiny, she was pecking at the back wall and the rocks and sand where it was but couldnt tell for sure.

Another weird thing, when I feed the tank I have to shut down the pumps and all, and she went straight to the top and was pecking at the water. My best guess is she's used to getting fed that way, so again can't be sure she ate. I tried pellets, she didnt like them. :-( The goby now eats pellets on a good note, hehe

Am I being overly paranoid? I feel like I should be doing more. if you have any suggestions please feel free.

My mandarin eats prepared foods, I feed her mysis and blood worms mostly. I am trying to figure out the best way to feed; with the pumps off it is easy to target feed her but she seems to eat quicker when the food is moving with the pumps on.

I've been turning the pumps off for feeding, mostly cause of the scooter, he wont chase down the food. lol

My mandarin has picked up her eating of frozen foods thankfully, I was getting alittle worried. lol

Otherwise everything in this tank is going just fine.

I do have some questions though.

Based on advice on this forum I switched my fuge lighting from rotaing with my regular lights to on 24/7. If pods want to grow in the fuge do they need a light cycle too?

Also, getting some red algae, havent had this before so I'm kinda unsure on how ti get rid of it. I've been sucking it up with the siphon during pwcs and I have been doing some larger pwcs' as well. I horridly overfeed this tank seeing as it has the scooter and the mandarin and they can be so picky! LOL

I also have named my mandarin, real original here, but it's mandy the mandarin. She looks like a mandy too! LOL

So any ideas folks?

Thanks so much!!
