It's been pretty boring, but I gotta give many thanks to @Mr_X and @Sniperhank for bearing with me through all the boring stuff!
I'm not going to lie...I was really nervous about buying him. That little 2 inch fish cost me $80! LOL! He does eat just about anything though and I spot feed him so to make sure he eats. He's pretty cool! The pod culture is easy to do and I started with Tisbe pods
. I just am not depending on pods
for his main diet. I made the mistake of ordering pods
from R2G. They sent mostly amphipods. Those stupid things literally attacked my snails! My mandarin wouldn't touch them and I later read that a lot of mandarin will only eat the little ones. I baited most of the big ones out but not before watching them devour two of my snails!
