    Since Jan 17 2016, around 7 months.

    I can feed it live, if I can find live food. I know my tank has pods but what happens when they all eaten.

    i have mine eating a variety of frozen, bloodworm, brine shrimps, lobster eggs. i target feed feed him with a turkey baster and he comes right up to eat out of the front opening. it took time and patience to get him to do it. Start with live and then mix in frozen - you can buy live shrimps from LFS

    Sterlig in the westrand normally has live brine shrimp . I bought my Mandarin from someone on the forum that had her for 2 years and only when my tank was 2 years old added her. Keep in mind my tank is 1000L with lots of live rock.
