Just as I read this he came out, sat for a few seconds looking at me then disappeared. LOL I think this one is gonna make it, he's so much more animated.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

he swims an awful lot near the top of the water. I'mnot sure if thats a good thing. lol He also started sifting little piles of sand today. Thank goodness this one is doing well. I got him at the same shop that I got the fish that poisoned my 125g. SO far I've gotten 1 bad fish outta say 30-40 fish/creatures.

So sifting sand = good, + swimming at the top = possibly bad... == I'd call him ok lol. I sure hope he makes it!

How's your temp in there? Sorry but I did all that reading and now my head has too much info at the moment and trying to sort it out and then some things just kinda got stuck in my head while others flew out the window. One of the things that stuck is.... one of the reasons for swimming at the top (alot of people think it's just a breathing issue) is if the temperature is too warm because the top is cooler.

top is usually warmer not cooler, lights are closer to the top. when first introduced thy will sometimes swim around until they find a suitable burrow. use a tiny piece of thin pvc pipe like 1 inch diameter and make him a burrow visible to you, its very cool. good luck with banana!

So I'm thinking on going to visit the mandarin that is waiting for me. It's been in qt for 2 weeks so far. See, the thing is, if I go I know I will wanna take it home with me. LOL

What should I do? Not go, go and not bring him home or go and have my mandarin tomorrow? Or this week at least.

Sorry, what I read was what you said, I relayed it backwards, thank you.

Hey Carey, ignore my post about the temperature, I reversed the info. Sorry.
