In case you are still skeptical about the claim that the ORA Spotted Mandarins eat prepared foods, here’s a video of a large group of these amazing fish chowing down. These juveniles mandarins, that just recently became available to hobbyists from ORA, are sweeping through the aquarium hobby. For the first time, aquarium keepers are now able to keep mandarins alive long term. Prior to these captive bred dragonettes, hobbyists would try their luck with their wild-caught counterparts only to be disappointed a month or more down the road. The wild-caught mandarins would eat all of the “pods” in the aquarium and then slowly starve. ORA got involved and solved these issues. Aquarium keepers can now have success with these beautiful fish.
