- Mandarin Dragonet / Synchiropus splendidus
Taking care of this guy for a friend while he gets things settled and moved to the his new shop location. One of the most beautiful fish I've ever seen.
It is definitely not recommended to house a full grown Mandarin in a 20 gallon tank, but this is just a temporary situation. They are voracious eaters and need a well established population of copepods. I believe I've got plenty in there for him to eat for now, but I'll have to add some more soon. Hopefully we can get him trained on eating frozen copepods like the other fish.
