it can be done if they will choose prepared foods as a supplement. they still need pods
. i kept one for about 9 months in my 29g with 70lbs of live rock, 40lbs of live sand, a 10g sump with a refugium section ( with sand ,rock and macro algae ) and a CPR HOB
fuge ( whith sand, rubble and macro ) which i did not light. the dark fuge really made a nice place for the pods
to grow. he transferd into the 75g and is still doing good. he eats frozen mysis every other day. if you can get one that eats frozen foods it can be done. it is low percentage though.
the goby may eat the occasional pod bit will not deplete your supply. if i was playing the odds i would not get the mandarin.
