Beautiful Mandarin. I was always told they were difficult to keep unless you had copious amounts of LR
to support they're natural food source.
I don't mean to hijack the thread but I have had my Mandarin for about 6 months in a 30 gallon SW
tank with about 30 lbs of LR
and he too seems to be doing quite well.
He actively eats Mysis and Brine shrimp and will eat Blood Worms as well.
