mandarin Goby 120 gallon Reef

Looking at adding a Pair of this to my tank. With nothing else requiring the copepods. And addint a bottle of 5280 first month then another the 2nd month. Adding mandarins in the second month what kind of cycle should i expect on the mandarins eating and or requiring more 5280 in the coming months or will the be enough to multiply on their own at that point. Obviously ill be adding Mysis attempting the Wean off challenge; however, looking at worst case scenario they say screw you to frozen food :P

I think if your tank is stable and population pods continues to cycle you might be ok, just keep an eye on their tummy to make sure they are not getting too skinny, plus u probably wont be able to tell for 6 months or longer, i had a pair in a 110g, was good for 1.5 yrs then the male just disappeared, not sure if my serpant starfish ate it....but the female still going strong. I never added pods in mine...
