    Looks great Yote.I got a Mandarin about a week ago too.Nice fat one and eating mysis.Great that yours is eating frozen too.I see you have hitchhiker palys on your zoos.Are they actually neon yellow like in the pic.

    Thats with just my actinics on.There more of a light green under the 10ks.

    Palys in the Zoas,and a full rock of Palys next to em.I got both the Palys and Zoas from Donny right after the 55 cycled.

    And congrats on the mandrine to.

    Just make sure you hold out for one that eat frozen foods.Or make sure you can grow enough pods to keep it fed.And trust me,for such a small fish,that can put some groceries away.

    Must be the bad rep part.Cause it seems that the fish i like too.

    I'm going to try a flame angel in the next couple of weeks.Waiting till after the frag swap though.

    my flame got sucked into my aquaclear 50 today it scared the hell outta me . it was just laying there sucked sideways in the intake. i unplugged it immediately and she swam away, ate food right after that so im hoping she will be fine, didnt look any worse for wear

    I've seen Blue Regal Tangs do that at the LFS I help at.They'll actually swim up to the filter intake and let the suction hold em while they rest.

    Rigo,It all depends on how big the rock is and the color of zoas.I've seen em from 15 to 80 bucks.

    Biff,Thats one of the rocks I got from Donny right after your first trip to Chatt Town.

    I have always wanted a mandarin but never got one due to it's poor eating reputation. congrats enjoy hope all goes well with your new addition.

    I fight those reputations, look at my 2 newest fish. they are eating like crazy! thats why i named my copperband "Lucky"

    Yote will whip that goby into shape. Already eating frozen food is a wonderful sign. As i see it if i see them eat at the LFS i will roll the dice! and if it doesnt eat, yote will MAKE the mandarin eat off his special fishing fly and take care of that situation :mrgreen:

    Yote,don't answer Rigo,we all know what he's up too.
    Rigo,your tank is to small for a Mandarin unless you find one thats eating frozen already.
