    Sorry for your loss Jamie. Based on the condition of the fish you received, it's likely nothing you could have done would have altered the outcome.

    Have had great experiences with mandarins. Never had a problem with them finding their own food. Live rubble helps.

    I shall be trying again! Under the stipulation that I receive a picture of said fish before it is shipped. Come to find out SWF.com picks the fish up from ORA on the day it is to be shipped out. So with that said I've spoken to ORA and have shared my concerns about a fish in that condition being sold.

    Interesting line of thought, Chris. Is there some info somewhere about how they manage their mandarin tanks?

    Is saltwater.com fish next door to ORA? Seems like a very inefficient way to operate.
