    I doubt it feeds on prepared food. Similar to a mandarin. You could try brine shrimp

    how old is your tank burt?do you have alot of live rock,and pods?

    otherwise give him to somebody with a mature tank and lots of live rock crammed with pods....else it very likely the poor thing will die.sometimes its hard to give away a fish you like but it may be the only way to save it.....my mandarin never touched brine shrimp

    well if he's still alive after 7 months without u knowing what he eats, i doubt you'll starve him now.

    please burt, you HAVE to research the inmates to your prison before you get an axe murdere! :)

    those will most likely be pods, burt. Very good things to have. Look a little like fleas?

    they clean up lots of small food particles and things and also provide excelent live food for fish like scooter blennies :)
