Got these guys in the last couple of weeks. Calling the Bleenie "Fang". The Mandarin has not gotten a name yet. Thinking maybe "Kermit". The Blennie suprised me with the way he threw a crab away from the entrance to one of his burrows. Wish I would have gotten it on tape. I know people are worried about keeping Mandarins. Well I watched this one for three weeks at the LFS and he was and is eating frozen shrimp. Talked enough here are the pictures.

Try Hikari brand mysis - I have yet to find a mandarin that didn't take to the food within a couple days. Don't take my word for it, though, as I seem to have an uncanny ability to "jinx" things as well.

I dont have a manderin, but I will say that my Lawnmower Blenny chows it down.. Hes actually gotten so fat from eating it that I would say hes un healthly.

I know what you mean when he threw your crab. Mine did the exact same thing once a hermit got to close to "his rock". He grab it and dropped it of the edge. lol. Great fish with an awesome personality.
