back to the mandarin though-if you're getting an ora from la, i'd be pretty positive its an ora and was on prep at one point in time, with many of those going off prep for a period of time anyhow the pods is a good sign. the simple fact that they have been raised on prep should make an easier transition to get them back to prep.

basically what i'm saying is... as long as you have a good pod population and are certain its an ora i would worry less about it. If you were going with a less reputable site i would advise against.

Speaking of anything with australian in front of it? ..... that's right!!! Lol. I know you're extremely excited about the mandarin but there's a high to the pods... they don't normally establish a constant stable population, they bloom/die/repeat.. if you have a fluctuating population a mandarin hey well may wipe hem out completely. Just would absolutely hate to see you lose one I have full faith in your keeping abilities (they are great) but mandarins are unique

thank you kurty and thank you brent.

i think brent is just trying to get me to get that tusk and not worry about the mandarin just yet. maybe the mandarin could be a reward for my hard work on the 125 and getting a tusk?

i can wait.

maybe next paycheck i can work on sweety pies sump or just order some rock for the 125? or maybe updating the heaters. who knows.
