Green Mandarin Question

I just saw some green mandarin on my lfs, I noticed that their fins and tails have nipped by other fishes. My question is will their fins be able to grow back coz I would like to have one. Thanks.

Yes, the fins should grow back if not damage too badly. But first please describe your set-up as mandarines in general have some very specific requirements.

I agree. Mandarins have very specific dietary requirments. They feed solely on living pods in a reef tank. They are best suited for mature reef tanks with 100 or more lbs of LR. A sump or fuge is also highly advised.

Also if your tank isnt too large... what other fish do you have... any wrasses likea 6 line wrasse that will compete for food?
