    not really.
    what have you got?
    there must be specific reasons why some fish are weakened and diseased.

    Hey Wiliet! I would love some help and someone to take care of my 2 fish until my tank is fully cycled. I don't know what the one fish is but I'll post a pic and the other fish is a convict tang about the size of a match box.

    It's tailfin is surpose to be like this and It is surpose to have vivid golden olive green stripes. Oh! And the tailfin is a little bit bigger than in the edited pic.

    I thought it could be a juvenile Southern Pompano, but i'm just guessing, never seen a juvi.
    maybe even a queenfish... either way, the chances of it surviving is very slim - a pelagic juvenile just can't be kept in a small tank.
    :(

    The "face" definitely looks like a pompano, but they generally have FAR more elaborate fins than this juvie...

    I think the juveniles of some of the pompano species have those elaborate filamentous fins and others don’t, or develop them later.
