Several species of caulerpa are illegal in California. People release them into the wild and they become invasive

Alto, my teacher said they were axolotls. She had some blacklight flashlights, so I shined it on one and sure enough... Glowed green! I'll send you some pics shortly if you won't let me post them in here. :P

Honestly I like all flashers. I think I'll buy whatever nicely colored one I come across first, regardless of species, although line spots are quite nice.

Eh cleaning the glass is overrated. It's prime copepod habitat, that's my excuse!

How do you keep your mandarins fat and happy? I see it says you feed cultured copepods on page 1. Do you do this yourself? Can you post some details? I love mandarins and want to own another someday. I haven't had one since my 75G tank 8 years ago! :o And I'm sure I was doing it all wrong back then!

They both eat several different types of frozen food and I give them a ton of fresh copepods every week. You can learn more about culturing here but basically I just have a dozen 2 liter soda bottles filled with saltwater and pods that I harvest regularly. I give them Tisbe biminiensis, which breed really fast and cling to the rocks where the mandarins can reach them. I also dose live phytoplankton daily which helps the pods in the tank reproduce rapidly.

I got them from liveaquaria but they were kind of expensive. If you want a starter culture I can send you some pretty cheap

That would be awesome! What about the tigger pods for a mandarin? I find those at the LFS and have a ton. I feed them to my tank a couple times a week because the clowns love them. If not I might by a starter culture off you and give it a shot! :)

Mandarins can't catch tigger pods. They're great for other fish, but not for mandarins
