Hey guys! Super excited to share my mandarin and how he has been doing in my first ever20g cube for 8 months! I’m so happy that he is still happy and healthy. I think he’s happy, he tends to fight himself reflection everyday. Hahah, he’s fine don’t worry. He’s either eating pods or fighting lolz
Anyway, here he is! Don’t forget to check out my IG page anaks_reef for more updates on him. I’m a ton more active on there. Thank you!
And don’t forget to share your photos of your mandarins too!!

Also, the last few photos are from a couple months ago. He didn’t grow out his dorsal spike yet. We were still debating whether he was a male or female but now we think he’s a male. There’s Anak for ya! Now let’s see yours!!

Beautiful fish.... 5th photo down is he eating something with two white antennae? You got him eating pellets yet? I’ll try to get a few of my female mandarin

Thank you. He is actually blowing a bubble. Not sure what point of time the bubble is at. Maybe he just started blowing it or not quite yet haha. But I know for a fact that he was blowing a bubble. He eats mysis shrimp. No pellets. He actually just picked it up himself, ate off my corals. Literally ripped it out of their mouths. yes let’s see yours too! It an be a real pain snapping photos of them.

Get yourself some Larry's Reef Frenzy frozen food , I've had my Mandarin for three years now , I feed Larry's everyday and he/she loves it ! If you can get your Mandarin eating Larry's you'll never have to worry about having enough pods . It takes them a long time to slowly starve from lack of pods . Good Luck

If you are feeding them daily and they are eating it yes. There won’t be too much to worry about with pods. I like to feed mine mysis every other day. He loves his pods a lot. Let’s see yours! I have LRS reef frenzy but he doesn’t seem interested. Doesn’t eat anything other than PE mysis and pods haha

Has anyone with mandarins tried NYOS gold pods? I don’t have mandarins, but I’ve been feeding gold pods for the past few months and all the fish gobble them up.

Here's Manny! We've had him almost 2 years, got him skinny and not feeding well from Petco. He now eats well and has a good pod supply from the cheato in our sump, seems to be eating brine or at least poking at them lately too
