Wink Purchase Options For Mandarin Breeding

I plan on purchasing 2 40 breeders and provide a 30/10 split. Dividing the tank into roughly 30 gallons and 10 gallons for fry. What is the general opinion on this as well as should I use a skimmer and wave makers? What about controllers such as Apex or DA?

Not sure where you’re heading with this idea ?

Pelagic eggs will be skimmed.
Better stick to regular benthic spawners.

Would a powerhead wreck them as well?
I have a 30g and am starting to breed phyto/roti/copes bc i am hoping to get a pair of target mandarins. If they did spawn i only have one of those crappy freshwater filters (ive modified it to have lr/carbon/filterfloss) and a powerhead in the tank. If i put a sponge over the powerhead and had just a small corner filter intake (out of main current/i can also sponge it) would that be doable?
What are other requirements?

Clownfish breeders will tell you, Power heads and filters are shut off for the most part of the larvae collection.
And phytoplankton and zooplankton cultures require a lot of work.
And that’s for the category of ‘easy’ fish to breed..to the best of my knowledge mandarins have only been successfully raised in labs.
