Green Mandarin and 29 biocube

Any thoughts on adding these fish in a tank this size? I realize they do pods and are more difficult. I have about 27lbs of rock in the tank but seem other posts where you need a 55gal and 70lbs of rock.

I wouldn't do it. Even if you purchase one that eats prepared foods, I've heard of many cases where the fish reverts back to just live pods, and you can't sustain one long term in your 29. Even adding live pods to the tank will get expensive and not cost effective.
