    Hey, My tank is not yet mature in any means of the sense. However, i do have my sights on the future, and my biggest wish list fish is a Mandarin Dragonet. I love that psychedelic look. Anyway, I have enough sense not to purchase one et because i generally don't like watching pets starve to...

    Here's some pictures of my mandarin. The skinny one is my male I recently added. The girl was skinny when I got her too, but a steady supply of blackworms has fattened her up. <iframe class="imgur-album" width="100%" height="550" frameborder="0" src="http://imgur.com/a/MnKht/embed"></iframe>

    I just got a purple queen anthias, I know these fish can be very hard to get eat, so here is a background, the fish has been at lfs for 4 to 5 weeks, has never been seen eating but is not skinny so may be eating some, but they weren't trying frozen. So I got this guy in hopes I can get him...

    Hey guys! This is my newest addition to my 33gal mixed reef (mostly sps). He is still very young, only about an inch and a quarter long roughly... but looks like he is male from the slightly elongated dorsal spine, but isn't quite as long as it would normally be on an adult Male Spotted Mandarin...

    Hi, Got a Mandarin Dragonet in my 90 gal tank. There´s enough Live Rock there (about 45 pounds or 20 kg.) and i have seen him nip and bite at the LR. I´ve also read it is good to get them used to "target feeding" with frozen foods, brine shrimp and pellets, so their diet is more diverse and...

    Decided to pick up a Dragonet the other day. Usually it takes some time to get them in the habit of eating frozen food. 1st day started eating, I never have had one eat that quickly before. I'm thinking his prior home probably had a readily supply of frozen food, but very please none the less...

    Hi. So recently if you have followed my other threads i had 1 erectus die of malnutrition and stress mostly due to the LFS. The other is going back to the owner 2morow since it was stressed to and possibly that its mate died made it stressed even more so it stopped eating frozen food completely...

    I have had a scooter blenny (dragonet) for over six months now. Since I can keep a scooter blenny can I keep a mandarin dragonet?

    I have been cycling a 110 gallon FOWLR tank for a couple of weeks. My plan is to get a mandarin as my first fish since they're peaceful and for the most part I'm planning on getting semi-aggressive fish. I know not to put the mandarin in for a long time because they eat copepods religiously and...

    Ok before everyone starts jumping down my throat I just wanna say I'm not intending to do this until I've fully researched this subject, and feel confident in my ability to provide for a mandarin goby. My question is how feasible would it be to keep a healthy happy mandarin goby in a 20 fowlr...
