Is my tank ready?

I started seeing copepods in my fuge about a month and half ago and as far as I know I have nothing in there that will eat them Do you think it would be safe to put in a mandarin goby?

I'm still waiting to get mine, lol, most people say it takes almost a year to build up a solid population.

You also could try an ORA one, they are supposed to eat prepared. But I wouldn't count on it.

Lets see a picture of your tank. 70lbs of brick is a lot different than 70lbs of the lightest most porous life rock with lots of caves (surface area). It takes A LOT of pods

that looks like pretty good stuff. However, on a bad note that six line eats pods too. There may not ever be enough to share
