Also, one of those $20 bags of pods is probably close to one, maybe three days worth of pods. The ones I started my culture from came from Sach's Systems Aquaculture and cost around $16.95 for 30 amphipods and around $14.95 for a 200 ml bag of copepods. Each of those would be about a single serving.

In all honesty, good choice. And kudos for doing your "homework". These fish are quite demanding because of their need of large tanks with large amounts of LR.

I have a Mandarin in my 180 and he is plump and fat. I have roughly 200 pounds of live rock. I didnt even attempt a Mandarin until my take was 1 1/2 to 2 years old. My Mandarin hunts all day long, constantly looking for food. Once was my tank was established, I have plenty of pods for him to eat and have had the Mandarin for a little over a year. I would suggest giving the tank plenty of time before adding this fish...Good Luck
