I tried a mandarin once but had to give it away because i soon found out how hard they are to keep. You are probly wondering why i am telling you this And it is because they both need to have special care requirments which i didnt have and looks like you dont either.

I also had bad luck with a mandarin... It was supposedly tank bred and eating frozen. She was a fat little piggy when I got her lol so no reason to think otherwise... Apparently, she wouldn't eat frozen after the transfer... 8-/

The twin spot is also a bit more delicate than a mandarin, as far as physically. The mandarins are quite hardy if you get them eating. Mine takes no guff from any fish in the tank! lol But the twin spot is a bit of a pansy. lol

I had my fuge running for like 6 months and it only had about a months of food in it so the bigger and larger the fuge the better.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Now if I set a fuge up, will the pods automatically drop into the tank from the filter outlet, or will I need to kinda shake the media off in the tank? Always wondered that...

Ypu can shale them off or let them migrate. Either will work. But what these twinspots eat is IN the sand, micro oragnisms and the small things that live in the sand, not necessarily the pods.
