Good Reef Fish - Good Sand Sifter
Description:  The Diamond Goby is also called the Orange Spotted Diamond Goby, the Pretty Prawn goby, the Maiden goby, or the Orangespotted Sleeper Goby. It is one of the more popular gobies.

Blue Mandarin
Pterosynchiropus splendidus

Description:   The Blue Mandarin also called the Green Mandarin , Green Mandarin Dragonet , or Psychedelic Mandarin fish can simply not be confused with any other fish. It has arguably the most attractive coloration and pattern of any commonly kept reef fish. The scale-less body of the fish is a blue or green color which has orange wavy lines across it. The tail is bright red with blue edging. Other colors can be found in the pattern as well.

Mandarins help to prevent brown flatworm infestations, which can be trouble for some reef aquariums. The Mandarinfish will hover and scoot around your reef aquarium without bothering any corals, clams, or invertebrates. It is best kept with other docile fishes in a community reef aquarium.

The Mandarin requires an established reef aquarium with plenty of live copepods available to feed on. You can supplement its diet with live copepods from AlgaGen called Tisbe Copepods. Adding a refugium to your system will once established, provide an excellent source of live food.
Recommended Tank size: The minimum tank requirement is generally stated as 10 gallon with 50lbs or more of live rock. This is based on feeding requirements and not space requirements as the Mandarin is a very slow, docile fish.

Target Mandarin
(also called Spotted Mandarin)
Synchiropus picturatus
Target Mandarin

Description:  One of the most dramatically colored saltwater fish, the Target Mandarinfish , also called the Yellow Target Mandarin fish, or the Yellow Mandarin Goby. Though this animal is commonly referred to as a goby, this name is misleading. The Yellow Target Mandarin is a Dragonet in the family Callionymidae.
Mandarinfish require an established reef aquarium for survival. It will feed on tiny invertebrates from the live sand and live rock, and does benefit from additional food supplied by refugiums. This fish will also help to prevent brown flatworm infestations, which can be trouble for some reef aquariums. The Mandarinfish will hover and scoot around your reef aquarium without bothering any corals, clams, or invertebrates. It is best kept with other docile fishes in a community reef aquarium. The Mandarin requires an established reef aquarium with plenty of live copepods to feed on. You can supplement its diet with Arctic Pods and live copepods. Adding a refugium to your system will also provide a continued source of live food.
Of recent news, the livestock aquacultural facility of ORA has successfuly reared Target Mandarin fish. The program has been very successful and these tank raised Target Mandarin fish are also available through Aquatic Connection Live.
Recommended Tank size: The minimum tank requirement is generally stated as 10 gallon with 50lbs or more of live rock. This is based on feeding requirements and not space requirements as the Mandarin is a very slow, docile fish. Perhaps more important than tank size is how heavily fed and nutrient rich a tank is, since this type of tank will generally support a higher copepod population than tanks run under more lean conditions.
Note: Due to the specific food needs of mandarin fish we request they only be placed in well established aquariums with plenty of live copepods available to feed on. We therefore only provide an arrive in "perfect condition" guarantee and no long term guarantee is provided.

  Red Lip Algae Blenny
Ophioblennius atlanticus

Will consume ALL types of microalgae, algae (including hair algae).
Description: The Horseface Blenny aka Redlip Algae Blenny (Ophioblennius atlanticus) is also known as the Lipstick blenny and Devilfish. It belongs to the family Blenniidae, family of the combtooth blennies. The Redlip Blenny is associated with reefs and is only found in the Atlantics tropical waters. Just as the name suggests, the protruding lips are red. Pectoral fins and tail fins are decorated with red highlights.
Recommended Tank size: It is not advisable to keep Redlip Blenny in an aquarium no smaller than 20 gallons / 75 litres. Ideally keep your Redlip Blenny in an aquarium with plenty of natural algae growth because this fish loves to graze and will happily help you keep algae under control. The Redlip Blenny spends most of its time perched on rocks near the bottom of the tank. It likes to squeeze itself into a cave, crevice, crack, empty barnacle or similar in the wild and stay inside with only its head sticking out. It is beneficial to provide it with the opportunity to carry out this natural behaviour in the aquarium as well, e.g. by including suitable caves and crevices in the set up.
Feeding and Diet: The Redlip Blenny should ideally be placed in an aquarium where there is plenty of natural micro algae for it to feed on. It is also known to help keeping the aquarium free of filamentous algae. To be on the safe side, it is best to supplement the naturally occurring algae with fresh or frozen foods for herbivore/algaevore fish, especially if the aquarium is not very well established yet. Even though the Redlip Blenny feeds chiefly on algae, it is actually an omnivore that will ingest small amounts of meaty food in the wild. It is therefore a good idea to occasionally provide it with small meaty foods in the aquarium to ensure optimal health.

Excellent food for Mandarins, Blennies, Gobies, Seahorses, and many other finicky eating fish

ReefPods™ Tisbe the most popular aquarium Pod -they consumes your aquarium’s wastes and detritus, reproduce well, and are food for a multitude of reef inhabitants!

ReefPods™ Tisbe is a live culture of the harpacticoid copepod Tisbe biminiensis. Tisbe adult copepods live on bottom substrate such as live rock or sand and will eat detritus and microalage in the aquarium. They produce a small nauplii which is an excellent food for aquarium filter feeders and fish larvae. The adults are eaten by small bottom feeding fish such as gobies, dragonettes and blennies.

ReefPods™ Tisbe may be used as a starter culture to add to marine aquarium refugiums or the main tank. Once established they will reproduce quickly, growing from nauplii to adults in about nine days. They will thrive in a wide range of aquarium temperatures and a wide range of salinities. It is suggested they be added to the aquarium at night or to the refugium to avoid immediate fish predation.

Tisbe is an excellent all purpose aquarium copepod owing to its role in the natural environment as a detritivore. An opportunist feeder, Tisbe can be used as a tank cleaner consuming uneaten food and wastes as well as phytoplankton in the tank and refugium. Tisbe is capable of producing many eggs during its adult life span that hatch into nauplii which will enter the water column as food for your filter feeding reef inhabitants and replenish the adult population vital to tank hygiene. Tisbe adults and juveniles may also enter the water column and be tasty and nutritious treats for your reef fish!
