How to achieve success with the mandarin gody long term? Specifically nutritional requirements? I have an eating target mandarin but many say that he still needs pod food from the LR which he picks at all day. My question is how to know if he is remaining healthy and getting the nutrition he needs? If he is eating brine shrimp and staying fat will he just keel over dead one day because he is not getting proper nutrition even though he is consuming a lot of protein calories? What are peoples thoughts and experiences?
