How big is your toadstool? I have that HUGE one in my 125g and it seems to grow daily. lol Love that thing, makes a great centerpiece coral.

Keep the updates coming, always interested in the goings on in your tanks! lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It's not huge, but I can definitely tell that there has been growth since purchase. If I remember (which I probably won't ), I will post some pictures of it later when the lights are on.

The Pearl Eye Clarkii Clown is still doing well this morning, just swimming about as Clownfish do.

Thanks for the interest! I am always interested on what is going on in your tanks too, LOL.

Well, off to a new LFS! I have never been to this one before, so I will report on how it is later. Apparently they are supposed to have ORA Mandarins, so if they look nice and fat maybe I will pick one up for this tank.
Thanks for reading!

I went to the LFS, but I didn't get any fish. They did have Mandarins, but they all had white heads, and the one that didn't looked like it wasn't eating. They also had ich in a few of their tanks unfortunately, I can't escape from it. LOL.

Thanks for reading the update!

More Possible Mandarin News:

There is a LFS approximately 25 minutes away that seems to have healthy fish. I have been there in the past, but it has been a while. I found out that they have tank-raised Mandarins that are eating a kind of frozen brine! The Mandarin I saw in the picture didn't look skinny either. I hope to go there sometime soon and check out the Mandarins and fish.

Thanks!

Thank you so much! I hope to get there at the latest by Sunday. I would prefer to get to the shop sooner, but weekdays generally aren't a good time to go fish shopping for me.

Yep!

I am a little nervous it won't be there though now. He had two, but sold one. He said he could reserve the one that is left for me, but I would like to see it first.

If it is meant to be it will still be there, I suppose :lol.

Okay, so I may be headed to the LFS today. I have been talking with the owner and he informed me that he has Mandarins in stock, however, they are not from ORA. If any of them eat prepared foods, do you guys think it would be okay to purchase one? I was looking at the 55g last night and as long as what I think are pods, are indeed pods, I have a pretty good population. Even if none of his eat prepared, do you think I should buy one, and try to train it while it eats pods?

Thanks for reading and posting your opinions!
