I have had my mandarin since about the 1st of the year. The hardest part for me so far was the QT period. Since they only eat pods and most QT's don't have any, I watched my mandarin start to waste away after almost 3 weeks. I went ahead and added him to the display and all has been fine since.

I have also added a fuge to help with the pod population. The guy at the LFS said all they needed was a lot of LR. I found out differently after I got home. I research things a little better now.

BTW, I have a 75 gal with 115 lbs of rock.

I have a question about the fuge. A large pod population can be sustained in a fuge, but how do those pods get from there, to the display tank. are you phsically moving them there, or does the system take care of that for you.

Hardware: 37 gallon SW tank and stand by Oceanic Systems, Magnum 350 Pro Canister Filter (half carbon), CPR Bak Pak 2R skimmer, Maxijet 1200 Powerhead, RenaCal 150 W heater, Compact fluorescent lights with moonlights. 40 lbs of liverock, 3" sand bed.

Software:2 Tank-Raised Ocellaris Clowns, 1 Purple Firefish, 1 Electric Orange hermit crab, 18 Blue Legged hermit crabs, 8 or so Nassarius snails, Xenia, Blue, green, and Green Striped Mushrooms.
