I finally did it! Mandarin

Well I have allowed my system to mature for well over a year. I have nearly 140lbs of LR in a 72g tank. I have a 20g fuge pumping out so many pods that my tank is over run with the little guys. I've had a Mandarin on hold at my LFS for almost a month now (in QT) and today he got to come home! He is huge, I've never seen one so large. As soon as I find my cam I'll get some pics of him. I love the fish. He went to hunting as soon as I put him in the tank. I'm so pleased!!!! Go me!

yes, congratulations

I dream of the day when I will be able to add a mandarin - according to your schedule, I only have a minimum of 355 days to go

LOL...the key is to have lots and lots of pods in your tank.....that comes with time and lots of LR and a fuge helps too! Not to worry you will get there...I did!!!
