pods

ok im making the change form my aggro tank over to a more peaceful tank then evently when i get the money to a reef (lights etc we all know are expensive). my wife wants to get a mandrin which i think would be great but was always scared because they need the pods to feed on. i want to know if after i get my last aggro fish out my zebra eel (gonna miss him so much) and i get the pods set up so they replenish themselves then introduce the mandrin would i still have to suppliment more pods to the tank or would one mandrin not bother the population enough to kill them off?

The fuge is a sanctuary for them where you can give ideal conditions for reproduction without threat of predation leading to a larger population. What's the size of the tank and how much rock?

Edit* didn't see 90.. LR?

Oh ya you'll need about 50 more but you could just use base rock cause 50/50 should seed quickly

Pretty much anything will eat a pod if it can catch it but for the most part you really won't want anything else in the fuge. Just go bare bottom with a bunch of LR and chaeto then seed with pods from reefs2go.com although it would eventually become established this will be much quicker
