This is a very bad idea unless you have a 2-300 gallon tank that is around a year old and loaded with pods. From the article I posted above.

Green or Spotted Mandarin. These two have one of the most dismal survival records of captive marines. Almost all perish within a month of wild capture... most often due to simple starvation.
Please reconsider unless you are experienced and have a large mature tank.

Passing on that fish is for the best and should be left up to experienced aquarist with the appropriate tank

I’d hate to see another “My Blue Mandarin!!!" post 8O
