After a good long look at the mandarin, i decided to setup the 10g qt tank again. Ive moved the mandarin over and im going to start hand feeding him until he readily takes prepared foods. I know that its asking alot but after reading through several reefcentral threads, people are having consistant luck training their mandarins via this method. I attempted to feed him selcon and garlic soaked mysis, he did take two pieces but spit a majority out. So i left 3 lil chunks in the tank. I will be making a trip to the lfs
in the am to get either frozen brine or live brine culture start kits. The transition will be as follows: live brine: frozen brine: frozen mysis, then hopefully pellets. Either way i need to get this lil guy bulked back up and on something reliable until i can get my pod farm up and running.
