Well I got 80 lbs of LR
in a 45 gallon, tank is new so I am not even remotely considering any fish much less a mandarin. I always thought of it as an "untouchable" fish until I ran across one at a LFS
. Store owner claimed it would eat prepared foods, and was willing to demonstrate it to me, but as I said, I am no where near ready for fish. Just wanted to know if this was an option If you found that appeared to eat prepared foods. I have heard of a few people on this board that claim that they have mandarins that will eat frozen foods.
