Appreciate the comments and concern. That said i dosed this tank several times with various types of pods since it was cycled and been dosing with phyto. There are thousands in the DT and countless more in the sump (not just the refugium- EVERYWHERE!) I check every night to make sure there are a bunch and if it seems to population is dwindling or they are looking thin I’ll redose, but as of now the pod population looks like its exploding.Also want to add that firefish do well in pairs only. A trio will always guaranteed to result in fights and death. I been there. I love fire fish. I tried 3, I tried 5. And this is in a 200g tank. It always go back to 2.
Also, your leopard wrasse is a huge pod eater. With wrasse in your tank, there will not be enough pods for the Mandarin.
I am in Orlando too and close to WWC superstore. Hit me up for free softies and LPS if you want to test out corals.
