also feeding the pods
helps. i feed my dark refugium and sump phyto once a week for the pods
. my mandarin is in a 29g with about 70lbs of rocks including the sump and HOB
refugium. he pretty much eats frozen mysis shrimp though. another helpful tip to feeding mandarins is to feed the rest of the tank first, then turn the pumps off and feed the mandarin frozen foods. my mandarin cant eat with the pumps on. he likes to look at his food for a second and then eat. with the pumps on it justs blows away. live brine soaked in selcon for 24 hours also helps supplement thier diet
