Not in the normal home aquarium they would eat waaay to many pods. Unless you had a huge tank, then its a possibility.

So I was closely checking out my 55g tank and lo and behold the sandbed is actually teeming with pods. I mean they are everywhere adn some are huge, like small little fish even. LOL

I'm thinking of scooping some of the sand out and putting it in my cube, give the pod population a boost maybe? Or maybe trying to feed them in a bottle and then pouring the bottle of pods in my cubes' fuge in back.

Sound like a crazy idea? Mandy is looking a little more plump thankfully but I'm still worried. I'm so hating the thought of moving her across the room into the 125g where I wont be able to see here every second and possibly loosing her in all that space. lol

What do you guys think? Am I being anal retentive again? LOL

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

Is there any way you could combine the two ideas? You could put the sand in the fuge maybe? It would give a higher survival rate..

What about turn the 55 gallon into a fuge? Wouldn't that then be able to supply your adorable mandarin?

LOL, Buffy.... I thought about moving Mandy into the 55g as kind of a treat, like her getting to go to an all you can eat buffet.

I would worry feeding " Mandy" live foods would be retro active in terms of getting her to eat prepared.

I agree. I think it might hurt the process of switching to prepared. But if it at any time becomes necessary to because of starvation, do it.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. But she's so small I don't wanna have her starve. I will keep at the prepared foods for her and see where we are in another week. If she doesnt start picking up her eating habits into the 125g she goes.
