ok most of these gobeys are picky eaters
Totally, but captive bred seem to be better since they were raised in tanks - plus I have some pods to dump in the tank tonight and am adding pods in a refugium shortly.

Im worried about the mandarin goby there's not a set up copo pod ecosystem yet. But if he eats frozen foods or live foods your fine.
You can check out the website Pod Your Reef. Super quality stuff. I knew the owner while he worked on his PhD at A&M. Doesn’t get better than having a scientist breed pods, bacteria, rotifers,etc.

You are correct. He DOES have a PhD and he IS a scientist culturing many pods, rotifers and some phyto that are not readily available at other places such as Rhodomonas. His bottles are about 1.5 - 2x the size of Algae Barn bottles and about 3x the size of Reef Nutrition Bottles, so by default the pods have more swimming room and look less "dense" than Algaebarn and Reef Nutrition bottles, but I've been happy with the results. Many that order pods that are NOT Tigger seem disappointed by "less pods" but Tig pods are just huge compared to Tisbe or other pods, so they can look small or like nothing is there, until close examination.
