Ya I would add clowns. It will be a 20 so thats all Im putting in it. Probably at least MAYBE one other fish. I know mandarins hide alot and my mom LOVES clowns and my LFS gets them in at 0.5 inches. She loves them and I like them so Ill get them. Ill definitely wait for the mandarin then! I didnt know they ate that much lol. THANKS!!!!! Ill post pics when Im done!

a 20? what happened to the 150 gallon tank? you can't keep a mandarin in a 20 unless you are absolutely sure he'll eat prepared foods.

The 150 is a aggressive tank with a grouper, triggers, and soon to be eels. He's planning on connecting the 20 to the sump of the 150. Its going to end badly for the mandarin even if it eats prepared foods.

Ive heard stories about them living in 10s so I should be able to make a 20 attached to a fuge and 150 work. Ill take proper precautions.

Haha lol x. Ik wat u mean tho. And yes it says 30g min because of the pods. Theyre fine in smaller tanks as long as pod population is good. I would get 45lbs of LR in the 20 +150lbs in the 150.
