I only know the tangs and mandrins lol, but it looks ok. The tang should be able tohold his own with the aggressive fish. The mandarin is the only one with any doubt. He's a small slow moving fish and I would worry about him. But thats just me. lol

I'm sorry LOL. Thye hold a special place in my heart I guess. I'm still debating picking up the one I have at the LFS, I'm so scared I may not be able to feed him even though he is an ORA. I would just die if I killed one, even by mistake.

Well just left my lfs... Some good and so-so news. The so-so news is that we didn't acquire any stock list members....they didn't have any dog faced puffers good news is I picked up a bottle of reef nutrition tigger pods and a bottle of phyto feast. The lfs also keeps absolutely beautiful mandarin blennys in stock!! Had to fight the urge to buy my black volitan (he's the last tank member) will be adding the pods when I get home

Mandarins are dragonets, not blennies.

Adding pods can't hurt, maybe give your population a boost.

I honestly have not seen a single pod in my tank....I know they are prob there but I can't see them. And each bottle was 20 bucks but its guaranteed to have 4000- live pods ..think I should count them?? Lol

LOL. I'd def wait on the mandarin then if you dont have pods swarming. I have like zillions in the 125g, I am honestly amazed at how many there are. I also seeded my refugium with a bottle of reefpods from reefcleaners so that may have helped.

Huma... You should be able to see pods bouncing off the rocks and the glass. Mandarins eat thousands of them. When we moved our tank... We didn't have them for a few months. Now we have them everywhere. You may want to hold off for just a bit on that dragonet. A couple of 20 dollar bottles of pods a week is going to add up quick.

Ohh I'm def holding off on the mandarin, imma prob seed the tank with 2-3 bottles and then give it a few months and see where I'm at. The mandarin is just too beautiful to not have my tank more than ready for him.
