Mandarins, Pipefish, and Interceptor Treatment

Hi all

I'm wondering how many people went through the 3 full treatments of interceptor at week 1, week 2, and week 4, did not remove their mandarins/pipefish, and had no problems with these fish starving?

I'm having trouble catching my pipefish so they may need to stay in the tank for the full course. It's 120 gallons with lots of rock but I don't know how many pods are still alive.

Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences.

I haven't done it but I would be more worried about secondary poisoning form the dead pods.

Well they survived the first treatment all right. And I read of one other person whose mandarin thrived through a treatment but I don't know if he did 3 treatments or just 1.

How mature is your reef?

Almost all your coepods will certinaly die before during or after your final treatment,but if your reef is really mature 3yrs or better IMO. They should,return in enough time before your mandarin,& pipefish die.
