Will the males always have the tall fin or will they get it after being a juvenile? And I was reading on them and one site says " These fish should not be kept with other fish or invertebrates that may deplete the pod population"
What exact fish are they talking about?

Copperbands, Scooter Blennies, maybe 6-line wrasse too.
That's all I can think of, but they will usually have a little, terminal mouth....about the size of a pod.
Im not sure about the juveniles, they may all have a small fin, until the male matures and grows one.

Haha well I was debating a copper banded but from all the things I've heard about them and having to decide between green mandarin and copper banded I'd probably have to choose green mandarin
I hope he grows one in of it is a he!

Just purchased him!
Bought him and a pack of frozen brine shrimp plus or something
I'll probably feed live brine once a week too, would that be good? Should I do it more often, less often or not at all?

Cool Armyman!! Did you see him eat the frozen at the store?
I would only use the live if necessary. And rinse them in RO best you can, when you do.
Really hope he works out for you!

Yeah he ate a few when my friend got there to feed but he thinks they fed him earlier
The guy at my lfs said they like the active lively movements of the live brine
An yeah I hope he works out too! Really pretty and I have heard most don't survive! /: poor fishies

He looks nice and fat, that's a great sign. I would try to feed the frozen first, and only resort to live brine when you have to. Mandarins eating the prepared frozen foods, is usually the difference between life and death.
