Help me out R2R. I have a 29 gal mixed reef nano with 2 sumps with aggressive feeders (like most reef fish aren't). While my madarin will eat prepared food, 3 Chromis, 2 Ocelaris clowns and a cleaner shrimp will out compete and morsels, that the 2 pj cardinals, yellow watchman goby and tail spot blenny will overlook. Even when there are frozen eggs on the sand bed, the female clown knows to create and storm with her tail to kick them up so she can eat them. my cpr HOB sump is packed with cheato and has pods and every month I dose Algae Barn 5280 pods and once a week dose their live phyto to help the pods. i just added a 10 gallon sump with about a 7" x 7" x 7" area and and am stocking it with rubble rock - no lights to be a semi-cryptic zone which I assume will be a second fuge for pods to get pumped into the display. My mandarin appears healthy, picks at the rocks and glass all day, but I can never see any pods in the DT. I'd like to set up a 5 gal tank to culture live food for the mandarin. Would you hatch baby brine or culture pods in a 5 gal? why and how? pros and cons thanks in advance.
