    That's awesome if they actually do eat the pellets. Can't wait to see how much they cost?

    I hear people talk all the time about how hard it is to get MDs eating anything but pods. I've had two of them and both times I turn off flow and drop pellets or Orange sushi roe over them and they eat it immediately.

    Sweet, SD! Good find. If anything, at least we can preserve the mandarins in the wild, even by a little bit.

    that is so cool!!!

    sen, mine eats roe too, but that's the only non-live food hell eat, and it doesn't really keep him fed very well. after 6 mo's or so he was getting skinny... that's why I upgraded to the big tank.

    That is awesome news!

    Hopefully that can be another fish we can leave the ocean.

    I just ordered a mandarin last week! (I ended up putting my entire order on hold due to the kalk overdose. I want to make sure my tank is back to normal before adding anything).

    I sure hope they have success with them. I'd definitely get one from ORA next time.
