How old is your mandarin and does it eat prepared food? How big is your system? Bet it has more rock in it than the person who posted the question. I was referring to raising pods
. It's done with phytoplankton. They do eat other things:
For the vast majority of mandarins, it's starvation that takes them out long before their natural life span. Mine is fat and plump, so far, but I supply hundreds of pods
a week to him. This is a topic that has been discussed into the ground. Most of them starve...and by period, I meant you can wish it wasn't so, but it is. Don't mean to sound like a grump. I just hate the death rate on these little guys.
