"I have a male mandarin in my 40 gallon reef that is doing excellent and growing well. He eats anything frozen (especially Nutramar Ova) though I'd like to get him eating New Life Spectrum pellets as well. These fish are easy to care for in any sized tank provided that the owner is willing to work with them and train them onto other foods. It is important to choose a mandarin that is not skinny with a sunken-in stomach, as they often won't start eating again. Putting them in a breeder net or similar and offering foods several times a day (siphoning out anything left over) is an excellent way to train them. Once they are eating well, they can be released. No one willing to invest a little time should be scared away from these lovely little fish."
