    Hi all, I have a 220g reef tank set up,maybe 150# live rock, running well last couple years. Ive started small tanks to culture phytoplankton and pods to be able to continuously feed and increase tank pod population. Id love to put 1 or more Mandarins in the tank, but wondering how many I can...

    I currently have a 70G aquarium and I plan to add a 20G sump/refugium to it soon. I really want to add a Mandarin to it. I know that they need a huge supply of copepods and I wouldn't get on until at least a year after I set up my refugium, so I would have an good supply of them to feed the...

    Sick Scooter Blenny/Dragonet Hi, I am wondering if there is any hope at all for my little scooter dragon. The last few days he has been sitting still in roughly the same spot and is barely moving. :-(. He is around 14 months old and has always been a really lively and happy fella. He was always...

    I didn't want to derail that other thread, but I'm a little confused about all the dragonet posts lately. I know there isn't one right way to run a tank, but the recommendations for these fish are all over the place! There's so many beautiful fish for almost any tank size and experience level...

    I've had this guy for about 8 months now and he's just freaking me out now. He won't eat. I've tried pellets, mysis shrimp, and pods. I've supplemented pods from the start of his entry as well. He looks super skinny in everything but his head. What can I try? ?

    Hey guys. I purchased a mandarin yesterday. It is still a juvenile. It's small. This morning when I woke up, I found its tail nipped and it was breathing a bit heavier than last night. It was on the sand bed, still is, and doesn't really swim anywhere until a hermit crab or shrimp comes near it...

    I have my Red Dragonet pair that spawns anywhere from every night to every four nights. And now that my Spotted Dragonets have successfully paired and appear to be in some sort of courting phase I think its time to research the inevitable. How to raise the little buggers.. This may be a long...

    Hello everyone! Unfortunately my tank started a battle with ich after I made a careless mistake and caused a major temperature fluctuation. My Kole Tang (who has passed away) was the first victim, followed by my Blue Spot Jawfish, and now I'm noticing it in my Picasso clown. I decided it was...

    I think my girl may need to go on a diet, kidding of course. I shoot a few black worms in front of her everyday.

    Finally about 3 months into my reef tank. All water conditions seem to be perfect so I have decided that I want to start preparing to get a Mandarin. My tank specs are - 55g, around 80-90ibs of live rock and a wet/dry filter(no refug it is a eshopps 150) I was wondering if there are any tips...

    Hi all, new here :) We've had our tank up and running for several months now, and just got the pleasure of adding a Ruby Red Dragonet! Our tank is doing wonderfully, the only other inhabitants thus far being a bonded pair of clowns, and a hand full of hermits and snails. Just curious as to if...

    About 3 months ago I ordered a green mandarin dragonet from saltwaterfish.com he came in fat and healthy thanks to swf.com :dance: I trained him in a period of only 1 week :nuts: now he is fat and happy in my jbj 28 reef. In this thread I will guide you how I trained mine I am aware that there...

I had him for almost one year, and I do not want him to go. :( Other fish is looking fine. Corals doing well, tank specs all...

    It might be obvious, but it was unintentional and didn't catch it a first.
