We decided to name him Grover because he acts like a dog=rover and my wife thinks he looks like a muppet. So Grover it is. Hes actually out exploring the tank right now. I dont want to take any pics of him for fear I will scare him back into seclusion. Here is one as he is starting to get brave.

Picked up a regular Female scooter this afternoon. Shes pretty plump and very active. Male is allready trained to the food dish. Stupid Grover is guarding it though. Keeps tryign to run him off.

Great thread! Thanks for all of your work w/ the mandarins.

 

What's your method for getting the Mandarins to eat bloodworms and Mysis?

Got a Scooter spawn tonight! 11-17-09 surprisingly at the same time my Mandarins would spawn 9:30ish pm.

 

Unlike the Mandarins eggs these are positively buoyant and stayed in their strands thankfully. Made for a easy collection.

Oddly the Ocellatus eggs possess a oil globule. Spledidus eggs did not possess a oil globule.

Fertilization confirmation. Egg development slowed due to low temps of hatching container.

 

17 Hours post spawn.

So did you lose your Mandarins? If not are they still spawning? Were you able to grow any out?

I lost all my fish in the great holocaust several months ago. ALL my fish.

Eyes sight is back to normal. Still run the risk of developing MS. I refused to take the interferon medications. Mainly because of cost. 30k a year without insurance. I have insurance but still out of my price range.

When collecting a Mandarin spawn I left the pumps off to feed the coral....I woke up the next morning realizing I left the pumps off. All the fish exept a bangaii where dead. I took this video of them spawning that night not realizing it was the last time I would see them alive.
