I am also interested in getting a Mandarin. From researching what I have read is that you should have at least 100g tank and should also have a fuge to breed pods
. You also shouldn't have alot of other fish that eat pods
so they dont complete with the Mandarin for them.
Also have a good amount of live rock to give the pods
a good place to hide.
Let's have some of the other experts chime in on this.....
90G RR, 20L Fuge, 50+ lbs LR (more planned), 55G Sump, Mag 5, Rio 3100, ASM G3, Outer Orbit 2x150w HQI/T5, UV Sterilizer, Hydor 3
Fish - Tomato Clown, Black Chromis Planned - Green Mandarin, Corals, few more..
