New Green Mandarin

Two weeks in the tank now and it's become my favorite fish. That is when it decides to come out and show itself. It usually stays in the back of the tank behind the rock. Lately I notice it coming to the front more often. I love watching it hunt and feed on the rock.

Alas, the mandarin is the LAST fish to go in. The aquarium needs to be mature enough to sustain one. My tank has been up for almost two years and it's a 125 with 245 pounds of LR and a 6"-8" DSB.

Thanks to all. This fish was definitely worth the wait. A friend has been bugging me to get one almost since I got the tank. She's quite happy with it too.
