You have just recently set up your tank, right? Not a good time for a mandarin. Do some research and ask questions about them here. Most advise says mature tank or not at all. Very hard to keep alive. Need lots of pods in your tank and very stable parameters.

I've ordered several times from live aquaria and they are top notch. Out of all the fish I;ve ordered from them only one died within 3 days of delivery and the credit process was really easy and I got my refund within 48 hours.

I would STRONGLY suggest you do alot of research on the mandarin, they are indeed difficult fish to keep because of their diet. It is possible to train them off of live pods and onto frozen food but it takes alot of time and effort and it doesnt always work. And from what I read they can revert back to pods anytime even after they have taken up eating frozen foods.

I've been VERY VERY lucky with my scooter and mandarin, it took about a month each to train them onto frozen food. But I also purchased an ORA mandarin from a LFS that was already supposed to be eating regular food, which by the way it didn't eat after I got her home. My tank also had a fuge with pods and alot of live rock so that helped the mandarin not starve while she was being weaned onto regular food.
