I wanted to add a sixline to my 75 gal
with a yr old mandarin but the more I read, it looks like they eventually fight it out. The mandarin will probably lose. They compete for the same food source so they will see each other as competition. It probably took a few months for the sixline to get acustomed to the tank.
Even though the mandarin is eating pellets, its main food source will be pods
. That is just instinct. The sixline is the same way. My sixline eats mush but I have decided to not add it to my display. He has his own system at this point...
Not saying it won't work but the odds are against it.
*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,
