Will the fins of a green mandarin grown back. What do you feed these guys. How many should there be in a 50 gal tank. Thanks

Usually only one per tank. They eat pods which come on the live rock. You just about have to have a mature tank(12 months or so). If he's alive his fins may or may not grow back I don't know. They are not considered a beginner fish but if your tank is old enough and has enough live rock you may be alright.

Good luck! Kat

Most people recommend having a fuge, if you buy a mandarin, because they can easily clear your pod population in the main tank.
