Mandarins are a great add. However they can eat 2,000+ pods a day and soon even a large population might not be able to keep up with the demand. I'd recommend to try to train it to eat frozen foods. Feeding brine shrimp, I heard oyster feast might work, etc. Good luck and I hope it does well .

so far so good with my manderan, watching him eating all the little bugs in my tank, i also have a refugium in my sump that is repopulating the amphipods, i might in the future get another one they are very interesting to watch they hover around rocks just like a humming bird
