I have a spotted mandarin who has been happily eating frozen food for a while now, but I've always wanted her to have live food as well. I have a 32 gallon tank, which cannot sustain a pod population, so I starting trying to raise tigger pods. It has been tough, I did everything I was supposed to. Im growing plenty of phyto, and feeding the pods regularly. I have been at this for 2 months, an my population seems stagnant. I have yet to feed any to my tank because I have yet to see the population grow, they seem to be reproducing, but at a very slow rate. I've read that Tigger brand pods are actually the toughest to breed (cuz they want you to buy more, not raise them). Does anyone know if this is true? I am thinking this is why I am unsuccessful in raising them. Is there a species out there anyone would recommend I try raising? Or maybe there's something else I'm doing wrong? Thanks!!!
