You mean mandarins? These fish eat specifically copepods, tiny organism the size of a period. Dragonets(species) can eat 2,000-4,000 a day. They constantly feed searching for food on live rock. This means you need a huge population of them which takes a while, plus sometimes the mandarin will demolish the population before it can multiply and the mandarin will starve. It's best to buy one already trained to eat frozen food or you can take a risk and add it to a tank w/ a large population of pods and train it to eat frozen foods.

What tank size were you thinking of? That's not too bad of a list, especially since a lot of people who are new to SW overstock their tanks.

I had a 29 gallon that had 1 clown, 1 firefish, 1 goby/pistol pair, 1 scooter blenny, and 1 bangaii cardinal. If your planning on doing a FOWLR it's really not THAT expensive. The most expensive parts are the light for coral :p

The prawn goby will work. A watchman goby and a pistol shrimp would be an awesome pair to view!
