seeding means introducing stuffs into your tank so that they can grow. in this case, you would be introducing pods into your refugium to allow the pods to grow and repopulate. the more pods there are, the happier your goby will be.

IMHO your best bet is return it and let your tank mature for 9 months to a year and try again. Once your tank is mature you should be able to support one assuming you don't have any other fish that rely on a pod population as a primary food source. Mandis are a beautiful fish but require very mature/stable systems. Also most online coral vendors will sell pods

Your fish store should have pods in a bottle. Buy a couple bottles and dump them in the sump. They will make it from the sump to the display. You will be fine.

Cycled and mature are 2 different things.
