    Yes you can, and there easy as heck to hatch out on your own. But you need a really good supply of Pods for the Mandarin to do really well. You can usually get them from your local fish store also. Good luck Todd

    Its always a good idea to get supplemental lights. You can have the actinics come on a couple hours before the MH, and stay on a couple hours after the MH's for the dusk to dawn effect. Todd
