I have kept a mandarin in a 30g for a year now. The key to massive pod populations is PHYTOPLANKTON....

I absolutely agree. I have done the same with mine. I've had her for 6 months now. I run a fuge though so I think that helps.

Some will eat brine but there isn't enough nutrition to survive on brine alone.

Let me say that if you have a large quanity of Live Rock, and you are able to keep the pod population up and booming, then it can be done. The Manderin is NOT for beginners though. Glad you all have had success in the 30g's.
