    Default CB Target Mandarin from Saltwaterfish.com

    Picked up my CB Target Mandarin from Saltwaterfish.com this morning from our FedEx station. To say I'm disappointed is putting it mildly. I'm totally ****ed!!! It is alive yes...acclimation went well but this is one of the skinniest fish I've ever seen!!!

    Hey Miz... He'll be fine, I'm sure. The way you take care of your tank animals is top notch. He does look skinny though! I've added a few mandarins to my tanks this way when I see them at the LFS looking all skinny. I feel sorry for them and take them home. They bounce back pretty quickly.

    One of my LFS had a boat load of these CB Target Mandarinsthe other day (this was the first time I've ever seen them carry any CB mandarin) and they all looked skinny too! I wonder if they got theirs from the same place? Maybe the whole batch was skinny. Either way I'm sure she'll fatten up for you, my mandarin looked way worse (skinny and white) when I rescued her and now shes a fatty. You've got this Miz
