    Mandarin

    I have my heart set on a mandarin dragonet.
    What is your experience with keeping one? For future reference. Thanks.

    I have kept both the spotted and regular in my 66. I have lots of pods so feeding was not an issue. It appears that the hardest part of keeping these beautiful fish is feeding them. My spotted one ate pods and mysis and was as fat as a house! I had her for over 4 years when she passed on (she was in another guy's tank for a few years before I got her).

    Make sure you have a good supply of pods before you attempt one, a sump/fuge will help with the food suppy.

    okie doke! I'm going to setup a fuge before I do so and let the tank mature several months. I'd like to try a male/female pair. I read they will spawn in aquarium.
    Thanks.
