I got my green mandarin over a month ago and at the first two weeks he was behind the rocks most of the time ,now he hangs around the whole tank,they are always on the hunt for pods and they go into the most acquard positions to get what they want from the rocks;for mine,I stopped following all advise and went to a nearby Key(I live in Miami)and picked up about 50 lbs of rocks with macro algae growing on them,set them in the tank and that little devil is the happiest fish ever,those rocks dont have the pretty purple and green color of LR but this are really LIVE with tons of food for that little fellow and the hermit and angel.
My advise if you live by a beach ,go get some real rocks,if not put some LR in the sump with the macro and after a month or so put it back in the tank.

55 gl,1.5"live sand,85 pounds of live rock,3 chromies,2 blue yellow tail damsels.1 neon blue damsel,1yellow stripe damsel,1 black white spot damsel,1spot fish(pijama cardinal)1 brown clown,1 camel shrimp,1 hermit,3 tiny emerald crabs,1 female 2.5 inch mandarin,1 medium coral beauty angel.planted with 5 species of macro algae.
The live rocks I bought the first 25 lbs,the rest I pick them at sea with the macro algae on them and the fishies love them,they come with all kinds of hitchikers(thats how I got the crabs and the hermit.

I would go down to my ocean but you live in the Flordia Keys, where the water is clear and coral thrives. I live in Connecticut, the water is a dark green color and the only thing that lives here is fish, sea weed, the clams you eat, and lobsters. There are signs posted to not eat anything cought from the ocean and if you do its like 1 fish a month due to murcuary. Heck starfish are no longer present here either. With all the ships and things coming in and out of the harbor its become more like the dead sea.
