Another good source of extra food for your mandarin is pods
from the filter media of other SW
tanks. I have 5 SW
tanks but only one has a mandarin. I take the filter pads from all tanks and swish them in a white bowl of SW
picking or flicking off the visible pods
into the bowl with my fingers. I do this about twice a week and usually collect several hundred pods
Please, at least a 75 gallon tank minimum with 100 or so lbs of LR
and no other pod eaters.
