View Full Version : Mandarin with frayed tail.....

It seems as if I am going through a "chaos" stage in my tank. A few days ago I got the courage to finally give a mandarin a try. He is a good size and a pig of an eater! This morning I noticed that his tail was quite frayed. When I first put him in my yellow tang and domino didn't care for him much and would lash at him a bit, but it is the 3rd day of him being in the tank and today they aren't really paying him much attention at all. Should I wait to see if the tail gets worse and if it does treat with melafix? and is that stuff even reef safe? Thanks!
