Is it typical that Mandarins will eat them, or were you just lucky?

yes get rid of them if they bother you, but controlling them involves not feeding your tank much or at all. these are like everyone else says just the regular detritis and deposit grazing flatworms. mine I see on the glass all of the time. they stay out of bright light too so not really an eye sore unless there are many of them. These should not cause any problems for your tank if they die, they are not poisonous, unlike the coral eating ones.
