Mandarin Goby
 
Just curious to know is there anything else that a mandarin goby can eat besides those little insects that wonder the tank? Like anything in particular at the fish store. I hear they are hard to take care of......but i just don't understand why? The fish store have plenty of them in one tank.....how hard can it be?

here is a picture of one.....they are really cool looking

Yes they are pretty,interesting,etc.BUT alot of mandarins starve in the long run.They love pods and after they wipem out thats it unless u supplement your pod population.Its best to get a young one that u can train to take other foods like cyclopeeze.But thats just it gettin them 'trained'.They are abundant at FS and usually cheap too,but they require a little care and 'luck' to be sucessful in the long run.
