While I agree with what sid said, I do think that a deep sand bed is beneficial to Mandarin, as pods have a tendency to reproduce in the sand as well as the rock. The watchman definitely needs a deep sand bed.

Warning the wrasses and manderin might fight because of the copepods

Might be better if you had a sump for the PODS to grow in to get an abundance of them before adding a Mandarin. Unless yoiu get one that has been weened off of them and will eat prepared foods.

I would love to have a mandarin, but that sounds like butterfly heart-ache all over again! If I do try it, I would set up a tank with this guy in mind, big refugium, and prayer.

The mandarin isnt going to be in the picture until at least 6 months from now. I do plan to add pods to the sump with some chaeto for them to reproduce. Wrasses are not on my stocking list as of now, but you never know. my LFS has manderins that are weaned tofish food but I want to have the pods too.

On a side note, as I walked into the room just now, I think my tank was making a clicking/tapping sort of sound. I'm not positive it was the tank, but it's the only thing new in the room and I've never heard this sound before. Is my tank going to explode? @.@

How much live rock and from where? Should a Mantis Shrimp be present, it is better this happens now than later.

Mantis shrimp? Like the ones that can hit with 100+ pound of force in less then a quarter of a second? O.o
Those things are cool.

Usually you don't have to worry about you tanks being shattered by a shrimp
