Hello every one and sorry for the slow reply to all your help. Well my mandarin George is wonderful. Very very fat has put on loads of weight, I also have in with him 2 banded pipefish and they are very fat now to, all get on so well. I've finally found out how to load on to you tube as I put on one of my hubby when he got locked in the shed, oh it was funny. So I'll be uploading vids soon, I've got some beauties of tommy my flasher flashing at Annie my lyre tailed anthia, she just looks at him as if he is mad. Click my mantis shrimp is getting use t me more and more each day, he is so fun yo watch, I send hours just watching my tank a day, well they are better than the telly. When I have the links and worked it out how to even send th links I'll up date. Thank you again everyone. byeeeee

My wife bought a green mandarin when I was at work one day. You know brand new tank she wanted a surprise for me. Although I was new to the saltwater thing my tank has been cycled very recently within the last two weeks. So she forgot to ask what it eats so I find out later it's copepods. It isn't an Ora mandarin but it loves the heck out of emerald entree frozen food. I've had it since Sunday getting copepods today to dump in there. He's been eating pretty good since I've given the frozen food to all the fish

It is lucky, wish my scooter and mandarin took to prepared foods so readily. But its usually not the case. Time will tell though....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
