everywhere, but as mentioned above they will literally eat all day and annilate the supply. Most tanks that have them have excessive amount of live rock for thepods to live in and have tanks that have been established for a good amount of time.
I ordered an ORA mandarin, those are supposed to eat prepared foods, BUT
it's not a guarantee that it will not revert back to pods
. It's just an edge you can have. I will be visiting the fish this week to make sure he eats prepared while the lfs
holds him for me.
This is a great fish but an extremely difficult one to keep. Most people end up starving them without meaning to. I know you don't want that to happen.
