I think I'd rather keep my stuff for myself. You should come over during spring break.

Yay paper towels!

So how's your sympodium doing? I was thinking of getting some to fill in a couple spots.

I think it would look better in my tanks :P Sure, and actually I can come over next week if you want a pic of your mandy (I promise I won't stay for 3 hours)

Yay light timer! :D

It's doing good, it's grown too, I like it :) I think I should start feeding it more and it will grow faster

I swear yoshii you turn every thread into a chat box lol!!!

Lack of research is the biggest down fall of people in this hobby.

Next week is fine. Monday, wednesday or friday, whichever works for you.

Once it grows more I could trade you something for a frag fingerscrossed

I think liveaquaria has some. Or you could ask your LFS to find it for you

It's actually not that expensive, I think my frag was $20, but there were smaller frags for $15 at the LFS I bought it at

Ok cool :)

Sure, I'll just give it to you, no need to trade

Btw, I was surprised my sypodium opened up so quickly once it was in the tank, I've heard sometimes it takes months for it for fully open

I like how I was all Debbie Downer about the Mandarin and then you found it.

I raided two of my pod cultures last night and got a good 10,000 pods. I'm not kidding, it snowed in there! The mandarins are fat and happy :)

Try blood worms on your mandarin, my pair love them more than mysis. My big male even swims to the top of the tank to grab them.

I feed them bloodworms from time to time. I love how they slurp it up like spaghetti :) It's just not very nutritious so I don't feed it very often.

How to tell the difference between the male and female?

The first dorsal fin of males has an elongated fin ray (yours for example is a male) and the first dorsal fin of females is small and round. Females are also much smaller than males and tend to be more docile.

oh good thing I named him Draco then. To find out he was Dolly would have been ridiculous.

I have had my Mandy eating the Rods on and off, how easy is it to get them on Bloodworms and Myisis? He had to be coaxed with live Brine mixed in but he did eat it.

Baby mandarins...

Those will be sometime in the near future once my pod cultures are large enough to raise mandarins rotifer-free. For now I'm raising the actual cleaner shrimp. Wish me luck, I'm going to need all I can get!

OMG that will be the cutest thing! ;)

It would be! I think it was pacific east aquaculture that posted a pic of one of their baby S. picturatus. So adorable!

I have had my Mandy eating the Rods on and off, how easy is it to get them on Bloodworms and Myisis? He had to be coaxed with live Brine mixed in but he did eat it.

Usually they will take to bloodworms during the first couple feeding attempts, but mysis takes a lot longer. Just keep mixing it in with live brine and rods and he should try it eventually.
