Also, Mandarins are notoriously difficult to keep alive. You need big pod populations and need to continuously add more in most cases. Have you seem it eating and what are you feeding it? How long have you had it?

As for the rest...you have not given any info for us to work with. What size tank, setup, what fish and how many, how long have you had them, what are your parameters?

They are better. The salt levels were to low. I use a coralife deep six hydrometer and i think its not very accurate. I use test strips too. Im investing in a better kit. I feed him nutramar prawn roe and he loves it. Eats it like crazy. He is out and eating now and all his color is back.
