Mandarin Goby Care

Hi everyone!
I picked up a nice mandarin goby today at the LFS and figured he was just as easy to take care of as a regular goby. But then heard something about feeding him nano plankton and extra additives.

Please give me any info on care
Thanks

I have a 165g tank with a bunch of Liverock and two 250W 14K halides.

Only have a small lawnmower blenny in the tank now.

They eat copepods only! They can be trained to eat frozen, but that is not easy! Mine eats frozen brine shrimp! He started by eating off my sun coral and now will pick at it floating on the bottom of the tank

How should I buy these Pods?
My mandarin was starting to graze at the top this morning. 😁

This tank in particular has been setup for 3 weeks but all the live sand,Liverock and 100g of the water came from my old tank

return it. it doesn't look like your tank has enough pods population to sustain for extended period of time. do you have a sump/refugium by the way?

if so, you can purchase some pods from your lfs and seed your refugium with it along with rubbles and algae to provide food and shelter for the pods.
