I'd say just keep trying. It took him a week to finally go in.

I think im gonna try and move the mandarin to a 5 gallon for a week or so or however long it takes to get him completely on frozen for sure. If that doesnt work, hes goin back to the fish store. Im not liking the idea of starving him at all...

Good idea. Smaller quarters make it easier.

It would double as a little quarantine/acclimation tank

That might be just a little small. But you could probably make it work.

Im worried about something going wrong with the siphon or pump failing so im just gonna keep it separate. I have a little betta heater layin around that will do the trick.

Its about the size of a baseball now! I put the mandarin back in the main tank because he was breathing very fast and wouldnt eat anymore. and sadly i saw a big dent where his belly should be . Hes gonna go back to the fish store. I think after i give my tank a little time for the pods to repopulate, im gonna try a fat little target mandarin. Supposedly they are easier to train. Im gonna start him off in quarantine though so ill have a better chance to get him on frozen

I didnt take him back now because hes doing good now and he is going in the diner and eating tons of baby brine shrimp. But i took some underwater shots with my life proof case.

I accidentally left a bottle of phyto out of the fridge over night. Is it still good?

If it smells sour, toss it. I read up on phyto recently as I was feeding it often and found its basically a bottle of phosphates.

I stopped adding it and my algae went away swiftly. May have been coincidence.

It smelled kinda bad right when i opened it. Very strong smell. I just started dosing about a week ago to help my pod and mysis population. I havent seen a difference in algae yet and my phosphates remain at 0 so i dont see a problem yet. I have heard that it can be bad if you use too much. Thanks!
