uh oh. please see if you can return that dragon or find a home for it.

not only is your tank fairly new, its very small and that fish will have your pods gone in a few days, if not even a day.

Wow - that dragonet is gorgeous!!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

See how plump he is? lol

I have a fry net? basket? that i put him in when i feed him. I will update on his progress. Picking up some brine shrimp today to ween him away from the copepods, then will start introducing a little bit of frozen brine with the live brine, and keep upping the ration of frozen to live until he eats just frozen, then onto mysis shrimp!

i don't see any reason to ween himoff of PODS. PODS don't cost that much, and you can feed the tank those for him. Plus its a benefit for the tnak.

20$ for a bottle. And i am not sure how many of those he is actually getting when he has to compete with the other fish. As of now i feed them frozen first. Then put the pods in when they have stopped eating. In hopes that he will get the pods.

PODS do'nt really swim around the tank. They are in the rocks and the substrate. I have a Trigger and a bunch of tangs, they don't eat the pods. Your clowns won't eat them, not that I've seen anyways. The Goby may, but if he's into Mysis and frozen foods , the I doubt he will. Your Mandarin, thats all tehy eat, so he will pick at them in the substrait all day looking for them.
