So i quit feeding my fish twice a day because everyone said i was over feeding them. When i did that they all (damsels and clowns) started getting aggressive. So im back to feeding them small amounts twice a day. It seems everything is back to normal. I decided to not get any more fish at this point. Cowfish is still doing great. Just trying to prevent any problems.

How long have you had that mandarin? I hope you have enough food in the tank for it.

I have tons of food for my mandarin i dropped to bags of copepods or whatever they are lol. I always make sure to ask the fish expert what they eat before buying. He is very healthy and has tons to eat.

The only impulse buy was my cowfish. Which is my favorite. I bought the tank from my friend. He couldnt take care of it. He already had the damsels. I never would have gotten damsels. I had them in my last tank. Had 4 and they would attack my new fish like a pack of wolves. Honestly want to get rid of them but not sure how to go about it.

A mandarin can eat a bottle of copepods in a couple days. How can you be sure it has tons to eat with that little bit of rock? It takes them months to starve.
