I have a mandarin in my 10G, one of my most favorite fish but, I also have a 10G dedicated to breeding and growing pods. So once I had a huge colony of pods I started to stock my 40G sw with them to see how well or bad they would reproduce. Well, it worked great! So i bought a Mandarin for my 10G.As fast as I could get them out and into the 40G there would be new baby pods all over the glass within a few days. I also run an algae scrubber (on all my SW tanks) so the pods get food from there as well as my supplemental feeding of shrimp. I just drop in a chunk of shrimp and they pounce on it like a cat on a mouse LOL. Many times I get pods that are about 1/4" to 3/8" long and I will drop a few in my African tank, YUM!
