Had a midas blenny making this toadstool its bed. Unfortunately lost this blenny to disease..
I got these two anthias together along with a royal gramma that went through qt together and doing just fine in dt.
After keeping tank fallow for 45 days my clowns came back home and look happy/healthy

I have received this tiny biota mandarin who has been doing great, but have set up these 5g tanks so I can start growing pods and feed the tank. I already have a pod population in the tank but I very much want to make sure his food needs are met for the future. Waiting for about 12,000 pods (and phyto) to come in the mail so I can Start propagating them..

I honestly love how tiny the biota fish come in. I wouldn’t put them in anything larger than a 40breeder for that same reason.

I have a biota coral beauty, yellow tang, and file fish. Love them! The coral and YT have colored up so well.

100%. I love their fish. I do have a Coral Beauty that was super tiny and now he is about 2 inches (maybe 1.5) and colored absolutely beautiful. My tangs where so tiny they were transparent mostly. I do think that you need to be extra careful when they are so tiny but they do really well. I have a pair of mandarin fish that were so tiny I had to feed them baby brine shrimp or brine shrimp eggs. They are fully grown now.

Yea I've been feeding baby brine shrimp as well as tiny pellets from sustainable aquatics. Have you found prepared foods are sufficient or do you have a large pod population?

I do have a ton of pods. I have never had this amount of pods in any tank I have had before. When I say I have a lot, there is a lot. I think they eat a lot of the pods, as do other fish as well, but they both come up with I feed the tank with LSR Reef Frenzy. I feed my tank at least twice per day. From time to time, I do add RDO pellets as well. Everyone eats whatever I throw in the tank and I think it is because they see others go nuts. The only one that does not eat all that much food I feed is my watchman goby. He is constantly grassing and is pretty fat so I don't worry about him.

Yea I have no idea how many pods my tank has but I'm assuming the population grew pretty big while tank was fallow. I always seem to have them on the dt glass, pretty sure that's a decent sign there's a lot.

But even though the mandarin is so small he's doing quite well. He cruises around all over the place. The picture that looks like a shot of the royal gramma actually was me shooting the mandarin he's up on the rock, kind of hard to spot. But his color is already looking very nice. Also adding a picture of the flameback after he made it into dt

If my copepods arrive before my phyto should I just add the pods to the tanks or keep them refrigerated until I get the phytoplankton or keep it room temp?
