Haven't made a post in a long time due to knee surgery but I need some help/suggestions...
I had been cruising the LFS
for the last few weeks and I noticed a Mandarin that was in a FO
tank...I had been keeping an eye on this fish as I know they are very specialized feeders and it was not getting the care it required...and it was beginning to show.
Long story short...after much debate I decided that it had a better chance in my 75gal tank with 85+ lbs of rock than it did in that bare bottom tank.
The little guy was starting to thin out when I got him, so I hope I am not working on a lost cause but I figure better to try than seal his doom by leaving him at the LFS
...Lets face it they are a beautiful fish, but best left to old salt's...which I am not. Given I have learned a lot over the last year and a half with this tank.
Now I am pretty familiar with the fish and their relentless hunting for food, however, I am not keen on pods
and the such.
I remember when I first started this tank, I used to see pods
climbing all over everything day and night. I am sure there are still some in there but it just isn't like it used to be.
How can I kick it up a notch and get some pod production going in my tank?
Thanks for any help.
