Thanks. PILKY

I see that your tank is only six months old. Keep an eye on the mandarin as they will only eat live food. They love copepods and will deplete the supply in your tank rapidly if you do not have a refugium. I would invest in one if you do not, or buy copepods to supplement what he will eat. They usually starve to death and will show no signs of distress other than a sunken pinched belly.

I love mandarins, and I hope yours does okay! Keep us posted!

He is probably have a ball feeding on copods and stuff in the comfort of the rocks...he'll be looking for new hunting grounds soon....where you can see him!
