Mandarins need a lot of Copepod for survival. Do you have a Refugium?

you should be able to pull it off when the tank is 100% fully matured. not for quite a while tho. add live pods alot and let them colonize up in the tank then way later you can have one!

Mandarin mostly live off of Copepods from what I know of I know they eat AMPHIPODS but when they are smaller. If they are to big they might not eat them.
