I am not sure how to feed this fish. I put in brine frozen shrimp and didn't touch it. Any suggestions?

    Dear Ms. Stegman, Mandarin dragonets are generally finicky eaters; not many are captive bred, so not many will touch frozen food. Make sure that your mandarin is a 'blue mandarin.' That term means that that mandarinfish has been captive bred and might accept frozen food. When buying one, make sure that the mandarin has been fully 'weaned' onto frozen food. You can train a mandarin to accept and even depend on frozen or pellet food, but trust me and my experience; that is a very long and tedious process. Generally, mandarins are to be left to the experts. Good luck! -Enoch

I might have a problem, I HOPE NOT. I've got a 135 set up, been going for about 5 years now. I do water changes, pull the coral at different times and bleach it, take out 1/3 of the crushed coral, and replace it every 6-9 months, What I'm saying is the tank is doing good. NOW my problem, my local retailer had, I say HAD a white faced(powder Brown tang in his store for about 3 weeks, eats great, looks great. He gave me a deal, 25 bucks. I brought it home, put it in my quarrantine tank. It's been there about 3 weeks. I'm ready to put in the big tank, and it hit me.....There is a Scopas tang in there. Are they going to fight?

    Re-arrange the tank. That will sometimes distract the fish to find their new favorite spots and forget about the new guy.
  • Leah Stewart - 2014-10-06
    So i have found it best to do two things when ever i add a new fish. One i definately rearrange or add one or two things, try not to make one fish the only new thing in the tank. Then i always feed my tank  personaly a little heavier then normal this one feeding.) Its kind of a distraction and a reassurance the new fish will not affect their food. Ive had alot of success this way in many types of fish, in all water spectrums.

    I have a big sail fin in my 180 and he is VERY rude/territorial to new fish, so I'll assume once your sail fin gets bigger it won't be a big problem!

    To get an idea of what types of fish they are fine with, and those they aren't, see the Social Behaviors  section above on this Lemonpeel Angel page.

    Be sure you water chemistry is within the proper parameters and watch the tank closely to see if there is some aggression going on. You must have a huge tank to house 4 sharks amd may possibly want to move the ailing bamboo into a tank of its own. You can try variety in its diet to entice it to eat, like human quality marine foods including squid, prawns, krill pieces, smelts, and anchovies. You can also try an appetite stimulant like soluble Vitamin B12. I hope your fellow starts feeding soon!

I have a 100 gallon tank with a bamboo shark, what fish would be good tankmates

    Any fish that are not too aggressive and too large for the shark to eat.

    is their a species that you can name
  • Clarice Brough - 2015-08-21
    The Naso tangs are fairly passive fish. They typically mix well with most other fish species, except for other tangs and surgeonfish, and they may be a bit overwhelming to smaller fish. Good tankmates can be any of the Angelfish Anthias, Butterflyfish, Damsels, Dottybacks, Wrasses, Parrotfish, Triggers, Rabbitfish, and so on.... There are so many choices, that you may want to decide what other fish you do want to keep, and see if they will get along with your tang.
