The Green Mandarin is considered to be a moderate to difficult fish to keep. It does require a very specific diet of small crustaceans (pods and mysid), and should only be kept in a well established tank at least 6 months of age, with a good refugium and lots of well aged rockwork. It is suggested that there should be a minimum of between 40 to 80 lbs of live rock per fish. Some fish may be taught to eat prepared foods, frozen Mysis shrimp, blood worms, and brine shrimp.
