    Hello And Welcome.
    Sounds good.

    Just one question. How long do you have the Mandarin? They are noramlly very difficult to keep as they eat live pods and small crustaceans. So that is why a lot of liverock is needed for pod breeding and normally a minimum tank size of 500L.

    Or is yours train to take frozen or flake foods. If so, then it is awesome.
