Introduce this beautiful fish and draw attention to your aquarium. The Green Mandarin Dragonet can never be compared to any other fish. It has the most attractive and vivid coloration and pattern. The Green Mandarin Dragonet features scaleless body in green with orange wavy lines across it. Not only this, its tail is bright red with blue edging. The Green Mandarin Dragonet is also known as Psychedelic fish due to its bizarre coloration. The male fish is larger and also features a large pointed dorsal fin. Although, more often it is named as Mandarin Goby, but they are not gobies, rather they belong to Dragonets family. The Green Mandarin Dragonet is found in groups or pairs, and mainly on sandy bottoms between reef crests, and is indigenous to Philippine area. It is one of the most commonly sold fish, and at the same time it is most delicate in nature and needs care to maintain its longevity, due to its feeding habits. It mainly feeds on live amphipoda and copepods, and these can be found only in larger reef tanks. The Green Mandarin Dragonet is very stringent in eating habits, as some of them can take even frozen foods. It basically use the front fins while looking for the food. The Green Mandarin Dragonet takes lot of time to get adjusted to a captive diet. It is extremely docile as well as non-aggressive, which makes it safe to keep in any aquarium along with other inhabitants. Due to its thick slime covering, it is resistant to parasitic diseases.

the most beautiful fish ever!!!
I received a healthy sized fish, the coloration is nice, and it is now hovering over the rocks looking or food.
