Beneficial organism, food source for many fish, and I envy you . I wouldn't recommend putting a mandarin even in the refugium because they can eat 2,000-4,000 pods a day(!!!) and a refugium is supposed to be a refuge for pods so that they can't get eaten and can populate...

Lucky! Don't want to get too off topic, but did you train him or did you buy him trained?

I think they ment that they would keep a mandarin in the main display and the refugium would be for populating the main display

With the puffer, lion, and eel? I'd applaud that mandarin if it survived!

Lol, you could bag them up and sell them. Haha. I wish my tank were a reef tank, but for now FOWLR. That's way out of my comfort level. I'll just keep admiring everyone else's.
