But if I could sell the canister filter, I would love to just do that and then add a bunch of more live rock!

a Mandarin not accepting prepared foods would likely clear the population. Also as mentioned the Mabdarin does best in an established tank. The starfish too might not be able to get enough to eat, hence the slowly dying mentioned. They also are intolerant of poor/changing conditions. And as asked do you have strong lighting cuz the nem & the clam require maximum light, and mature systems.
Alright, no mandarin it is
I have 2 corallight fixtures.
One is a T5 Dual and the other is a T5HO Dual
62 watts from T5HO and 36 watts from T5
