    Greetings too all,
    My \"passive\" communtity aquarium is now 3 years + and still going well. Presently, the 20 gal. aquarium is occupied by one young \"H.hystrix\" & \"H.Erectus\". I say young because, I\’m hoping they will continue to thrive. I\’ve observed that tank mates play an important role in the community aquarium. The bright little \"yellow clown goby\" \"rainford\’s goby\" (Amblygobius rainfordi), \"whiteray shrimp goby\" have all been wonderful neighibors for the seahorses. the rainsford will even clean the seahorses when prompted. Just recently, a tiny \"striped mandrinfish\" or dragonet has been introduced and seems to be doing well. Plenty of live rock for it to graze over. That\’s my 2cents for now. Best wishes to everyones fishes.

    Please return the mandarin or find him a suitable home ASAP. He may look fine for now…but he will starve to death in 3 months tops UNLESS you are buying LARGE quantities of pods on a regular basis to feed him (or her). There is no way a 20 Gallon tank can support the pod population necessary to keep him alive. (none of this applies, of course, if you have successfully trained him on frozen mysis…which is very rare and lucky) Of course, you might be able to keep him in a 20 if you had about a 100 gallon refugium stocked with pods and hooked that up to the system. Please do research on these gorgeous animals feeding requirements. WEtwebmedia.com is an excellent source of information. Best of luck in finding him an appropriate home and glad to hear your other tank mates are doing well in such a small space.

    Hi dusty rider,

    You have some wonderful tankmates for your 2 seahorses. Very good choices!!

    Ecogirl is however right most mandarinfish starve to death unless placed in a large well established tank without food competitors and with tons of live rock.

    Also your 20g tank is at it’s maximum capacity at this point and any additional fish will be overstocking it. If everyone is happy and healthy it would be best to leave well enough alone.

    Cheers,

    Leslie

    Hey Leslie,

    Thank you and Ecogirl for the replys. Your insights are thoughtful.
    At present, all the fishes in the 20gal are doing swimmingly!

    Regards,
