    I'm pretty sure my Male Biota Mandrin was stung by my Acan. I watched him swim over and sat down and didn't move afterward. Any help or experience with healing the fish? I would hate to lose the little guy.

    That's odd. Mandarins have a very thick mucus coating. I'm wondering if something else is going on.. picture?

    Lost the poor thing. I moved him into an isolation box earlier. Came home from dinner and he's gone. Dissapointed at my decision to release him from the isolation box. He's been with me for two weeks.

    Starved to death mate. Very skinny looking fish.
