First fish..

My tank has been up for about 2 months now and I have just purchased my first fish.. a scooter dragonette.. I didn't realize they were like mandarin fish when I got it..the lfs didn't have any other fish in and I wanted to get a fish so I can start feeding the tank.. since my system is so new will the scooter eat all the pods up or do u think I'll be ok?

Honestly, with your tank only two months old, he's probably going to starve to death.

They often starve to death in old established tanks.

From what I heard dragonites just keep the pod population under control. Pods reproduce like rabbits, Mine reproduce in my fuge then flow into the main aquarium from what I have seen also I look at one rock and I see like 10 pop their heads out then go back in. IDK whats going on in there maybe a little party? My point is is that pods once there in the aquarium they will continue to be there even if they are being eatin.
