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

Just use a turkey baster and shut down your flow for feeding. I started mine off on frozen cyclopeeze and worked my way up to brine, bloodworms and mysis. They are very very slow eaters and wont' get much food if the flow is running in my experience.

Were there pictures of the mandarin? I didn't see any but I just glanced through some pages of this post. lol

I think sexing them has to do with the dorsal fins on top. The pair that I choose mine from has a smaller fin while the male had a larger fin and was larger in size. It's probably silly to want to know the sex of the fish but I like to know. Makes it easier to name them if I do LOL

Either way nice pickup. Is it in qt now and what if anything are you feeding it? QT might be a good place to see what you can try to feed him. BUT if he isn't eating then the DT might be the place for him since it will have some pods to hopefully get him by until he gets on prepared foods.
