Well it's hard to say if they were pods
. There is so much life in the live Rock. Mostly you see copepods near the sand and rock. You have pics?
How much live rock you have? How old is the tank?
I had amphipods and copepods running about daytime on 80lbs of livestock. I was thinking of mandarin goby too. Just to illustrate the point how many pods
will goby eat he just give me his . Within one week day time pods
were gone and second week I couldn't even see them at night. I returned the goby to him. It's been 6 months I am still waiting for pods
to grow back.
If you really want a mandarin look for one eating prepared food.
Thanks my two cents anyways....
