OK. Heres a question for you--what do you do with something like a Mandarin. I doubt there is anything in your quarantine tank for it to feed on for a month. R

I wouldn't even attemp a Mandarin unless your tank is 90+ gal with 1.5+ lbs of LR per gal, a year old and has tons of pods.

To answer your question, you would be able to harvest pods/LR from the tank to put into your QT until the time has passed to be able to transfer the Mandarin to the main.

I didn't say that I would put a Mandarin in as a first fish in a new tank. Even with an aged large tank it would be difficult to collect and transfer enough pods to support a Mandarin in a quarantine tank.
