Those are really cool fish, but everyone at the pet stores warns me against them. I've been told that they are really only for established aquariums.

Any thoughts?

Hi White.:)

This has been discussed before. Your lfs have been most prudent with their advice.:) They are right that the Mandarin Dragonettes are for established tanks only. If my mind serves me right :mrgreen: , these fish are quite sensitive to water quality and a newly-setup tank will always have extreme changes in water chemistry.:)

Oh wow, that's an absolutely gorgeous fish. I hope it's not intrusive, but how much does one of those cost?
