Since wiping copepods off my glass was a daily ritual now I figured I could start. Lol. Plus I'll keep dosing for a while to make sure it is maintained. My husband didn't want him but I said it was my tank. Lol. Lay down the law! Jk

I've had really good luck with my 125g and pods. Not sure if everyone has this, but my pods are so big they can actually eat pellets. LOL No joke, when I feed pellets you can see them take them and run away. Sometimes the pods even fight for the pellet. It's hilarious! I didn't do anything to get the pods, didn't even put any in and I have a very solid colony of them. Took about 6 months or so but they are everywhere. lol

I got my mandy onto frozen foods by starting off small, using cyclopeeze, then plankton, then baby brine shrimp and now she eats everything I put in the tank. She especially likes bloodworms.

Awesome! Why don't you put a different kind of mandarin in that tank?

I have been thinking of getting a wild caught red mandarin. Just figured i wouldnt see it much with all the rock. My lfs has some big fat juicy mandarins, like 3-4 inches and fat as all get out.

I really like the Red Mandarins too, for some reason, I never see those in pet stores before.

I figure I'll try bloodworms. I have huge amphipods as well. At first I thought it was a shrimp bit when I got closer I realized what it was and was happy. My refugium is stocked well with rotifers and amphipods and copepods. But i'm gonna keep dosing just in case
