Awesome! He looks great! Maybe it really was nutritional, and not the other way around. As I mentioned, I know I heard complaints from people that the ORA cb mandarins were problematic to feed. I wonder even more if the issue was less that they weren't taking prepared food, and more that they're still a fairly touchy fish, and if you aren't target feeding, they can still easily starve.

Update, male is fat and happy, and spawning with my female!  First pic showing him thin and the rest new plus one of female with eggs.  Tank is a bit dirty lol but wanted to show him anyway.

What an uplifting post!  I love it when an animal has been loved back to health.  Excellant job Laurasea.
