As carey and others have mentioned numerous times, its not what you really wanna hear but its more than likely not gonna work. I myself have 2 triggers, both 5-6", absolutely destroyed a 4" rainbow wrasse... I mean his internals and guts were completely gone. Even if your trigger left him alone...the groupers gonna prob make dinner out of him

Yeah, I have a Niger Trigger and he took a bite out of my Sixline's stomach and continued to attack him. If I were you I wouldn't do it. Sorry.

No, putting it in the fuge isn't enough space and isn't fair to the madarin. Putting him in the tank, even if you put it in at night, its only a matter of time until your grouper/ triggers find him and make him a meal.

Ya I know. I actually decided on that myself. I just got a maybe from my mom about setting up a 20g refugium outside of the tank LIKE a DT but not. May do that!!!!! GETTING EXITED!!!!! I would need like 10-15 feet of tubing. Do you know where I could get it????? I would be using my overflow from my old sump for the 20, I need extentions on that. Its a standard ridged tubing. Do you know where I could get some? Also, I need tubing to get the water from the sump to the 20, 10-15 ft away. Do you know how I could do that?

There's no way you are gonna be able to run 10-15 feet of tubing and reliably supply a mandarin with pods. We are trying to save you the more than likely heartache that would result from you attempting to house a mandarin with your selected fish. And by all means ask questions but you need to research these things on your own so that you learn as you go. Having others research everything for you isn't going to help you learn

I know I have to research these things but I have seen people with beautiful refugiums. I will keep my current in sump refugium for growing pods, and make this tank with the mandarin. I dont see why thats so bad. Ill look for it myself. If you dont want to research thats perfectly fine. Just dont.
