Red Mandarin (Synchiropus splendidus).

An excellent fish for small to medium sized reef aquariums. We import most of our Mandarins from the Philippines where they grow much larger than the more commonly seen Indonesian specimens. Mandarins from the part of the Philippines we get them from, may get to 4” or more. We wean all of our Mandarins onto Frozen Copepods, and Frozen Cyclops, before they leave the shop. we recommend feeding on these two feeds at least 3 times per day. In an established reef tank this can be reduced to two feeds per day. Mandarins have small mouths and so often will not take other foods, so we recommend ensuring one of these two foods are used. Unless otherwise stated all our Mandarins are male, we very rarely get females.


From 1” to 4”.


Reef safe with all corals. Males may fight, so only add 1 male Mandarin per aquarium. Avoid mixing with other Dragonets such as Scooters. As with most small fish, large predatory fish may try to eat them. As with most small reef fish they may jump if startled so a tight fitting lid with no gaps is recommended.
