Seldom mandarins live more than a couple of years in aquariums I think the longest I have heard one surviving is 7 years in a passive system. They are a very beautiful fish but one I won't attempt to keep since I get very attached to my fish.

I'm really excited. So a lot of coral will work with a mandarin. What kind of fish work with a mandarin?

Any corals will work. Try to stay away from other fish that require pods as their only diet. Why not simple - mandarin (after tank is established as well as pod population) clown, watchman goby, and a few decorative shrimp with a great selection of corals. There is a great variety of corals to chose from based on your lighting
