Check after lights out with a dim flashlight. Most likley you do have them they are just remaining nocturnal.

That said though I wouldn't recommend a mandarine in such a small tank no matter how mature. It is not enough to properly support it's feeding habits. They do best in a large reef system with a matching amount of LR or at the very least a large refugium.

Cheers
Steve

Do you know for a fact that you had some to start with? Not all live rock will come with the fauna we'd like. You might need to get a starter population to get them breeding.
