    As simple as the title says. We got some in this past week and still have a couple left. I am working on getting in another batch this week if anyone would like one.

    They will eat frozen foods and in some cases small pellets, but please be aware that these fish need to eat very regularly. A couple of feedings a day with frozen foods will still not be enough for their long term health. Consider the frozen foods just a good supplement to add to an existing supply of live foods for the mandarins. Please be sure to have the same good copepod population as you would when trying to care for a wild caught mandarin!

    The Mandarins are in from Biota Palau! As well as some really nice gold hammers and torches and this amazing "MEGA SQUAM!"

    I got one from biota not to long ago and these guys eat every hour! I have her in QT alone. I see her eating all day. Mainly the cyclops that I feed and some pellets. I feed 5 times a day frozen mixed with selcon then once a day I feed dry foods in the 250-400 micron range. The food gets introduced with the pumps off and I leave it that way less n less now but the mandarin never darts over to feed. Instead, all day she just snacks little by little hahah it’s so crazy she doesn’t show any excitement towards the food. they just graze casually ALL....day.

    That is the key is to keep them with plenty of feeding opportunities.
