You can get a green/red manderin around $15. I'm going to purchase a Dremel soon and start turning my wet/dry filter into a sump, hopefully I'll build 1 with a large enough refugium

The PODS in a Bag are ok, but are usually just one type. Indo Pacific Sea Farms (IPSF.org) and Inland Aquatics sell detrivore kits which consist of several different types. I recommend getting 3 or 4 different detrivore kits to get as much variety as you can.

I got my mandarin from my LFS and it's doing fine with live brine shrimp. When I went to the store I specifically asked what they eat, observed for a while, and made sure for myself that she really did eat what they claimed. She is currently in my QT and doing fine.
And she came with the regular $30 pice tag
