Thanks

Do not buy a mandarin goby. It will be a costly mistake.

Very difficult specimens to care for, some of the most experienced reefers have trouble caring for them. It would likely survive until your pod population disappeared, then would slowly waste away. It is almost impossible to supplement its diet.

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.
