I might the thing is I bought with my 45 gal with the mands and I moved the whole thing with some water and rocks sand etc with it and the guy had em for some time .I moved them to my other tank and I add pods every week about 500 .my 45 is coral only now but u can see a ton of pods on the glass and every where and m trying to raise the pods there and just take a few gal in the future every week and just add it to the other one ... And catching them without taking the whole tank apart is tough any ideas

It shouldnt be that difficult to get 2 fish outta a 65g. You will have to remove a good portion of the rock though. I usually get a rubbermaid tub and fill it half way with water and just move the rock in there for a few minutes. Once the majority of the rock is out it should be relatively easy to catch em. lol If I can fish guys outta a 6 foot tank then you can do it too.

This also would be a good time to do a thorough cleaning while the rock is out and the water level is lower. You will be able to get at coralline algae or other algae that is further down the glass since it will be half empty once the rock is out.
This is probably for the best, returning the fish for a store credit. I had a mandarin for a few years and it was very very difficult and time consuming to get him eating and to keep him fat. Luckily i was able to train him on frozen food and a few years after getting him he was eating pellets. But that is not the NORM. My water was always one step away from being unaceptable due to all the feedings the mandarin required.
Good luck.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
