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.


Tank: 90 Gal SW Reef in the making

See my info for setup and inhabitant details:

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.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
