    unfortunately the sand went yesterday. Just some rock left now.
    You can smash big bits up Chris then you'll have lots of little bits

    How old is your tank Turner??

    If it isnt established then chances are your system wont have the amphipods and copepods to support the mandarin and it will starve to death. If that's the case you will need to either a: breed some yourself or b: buy some in.

    Hi mate, mature rock and rotifers are good for a mandarin. maybe think about feeding copepods every few weeks or so. I never did and that mandarin is fat and healthy from just picking off the rocks.
