These must be live pods! I would also research culturing a pod population separate from your tank as well!
If he is grazing at the top there are no pods for him to feed on! I would also read up on how to train it to eat frozen brine shrimp!

Even if you started cultivating pods now, by the time you have a good supply the madarin will be starved or even dead. I made a mistake and got one and was buying pods every week and he still died. You're best bet is to give it to someone who has a mature tank (more than a year old with a lot of live rock). They are relatively cheap and you can always get another one later on.

Sorry if we are treating you like a newbie, but you bought a fish having no idea what they eat or how to prepare for!
Maybe if you had mentioned the tank has been running for years we would not ask these questions

Mandarin Goby Care

I think the secret is to get them to eat a high calorie diet. Copepods are not very nutritious, thats why they need to eat thousands. Live white worms can be fed as well as stuff like small prawn eggs and flying fish eggs, available at Asian grocery stores and on line. All of these are loaded with nutrition and will keep a mandarins fat. They are also sustainable, which pods aren't always.
