    Will a midas blenny harass a mandarin if I add one to my tank? My blenny is really active but does not bother my clown who is only about a fifth of his size.

    And yes I've been reading up on mandarins and believe I can sustain his appetite.

    Blenny won't worry the mandarin. I would worry about your 140L tank having enough food for a mandarin. Do you have refugium ?

    Other option is finding a mandarin that eats prepared food.

    From what I've been reading there are a lot of ways to ensure that you always have lots of pods by setting up LR properly and even breeding them separately. And I found on another forum that there's a guy who has been experimenting on them and says they love to eat roe.
    Gonna let my tank mature for a while longer though, just trying to find out what fish to keep. Don't want to have to remove fish in the future to accommodate other fish I really want so I'm making sure now.
