Can you just add pods to the tank? They sell them in a bottle. Would this work for a Mandarin?

it would, but you'd spend a lot of money buying enough pods to keep it alive. You'd be purchasing pods on a very regular basis. So if you're up to that, go for it.

Couldn't you buy alot of pods at once so they mandarin can't eat them all quick enough so the pods could start to mutiply and so ur tank would never run out of pods?

Just wondering

i read (probably on wetwebmedia) that you can take a strawberry basket, fill it with live rock rubble, and put it upside down on the sand... you can use this as an area to grow pods. i would think that you would have to keep your fish away from it, to prevent the pods from being depleted too quickly. plus, you would probably want to seed it with some large purchased pods.

ive never tried it, but i know i have read it somewhere...

as some others have said, if you have a fuge, you can use it to grow pods for you main tank. but unless you have a fuge over your tank (with a gravity return) you risk killing the pods in the return pump.
