    Will ahppen, they are competing for the same food source. Morne also keepin mind a mandarin doesnt have scales like other fish, that makes them very vulnerable to attacks.

    What does work is flatworm exit coupled to high flows . . . I'd steer away from getting livestock just to eat the worms, they're always going to find somewhere to breed where the fish can't find them . . .
