those aren't pods that mandarins eat. those are isopods. pretty common to see a population explosion of those in a young tank.
i'm guessing they look like these little guys here:

neither. those in particular don't do much of anything. you see them then all of the sudden they disappear, never to be seen again. some isopods are bad however, but not those.
here's one isopod i wouldn't want in my DT-

they are carnivorous scavengers. google them. you'll find some interesting videos.

isopod names a large group of creatures. you know those little roly-poly bugs that curl up into a ball then threatened? those are isopods. not bugs at all.
