The Green Mandarin Dragonet, Synchiropus splendidus, features a vibrant green scaleless body with orange and blue wavy lines across the body and tail highlighted in blue edging. Male Green Mandarin Dragonets also have a large pointed dorsal fin. They are very peaceful and can be housed with other peaceful fish in a reef tank setting, but may become territorial towards other blennies, gobies or dartfish in smaller tanks. However, they are very sensitive and can be difficult to acclimate, requiring an established set up and steady copepod source.


Gobies tend to stay mainly towards the bottom of the tank, burrowing and sifting through the sand. Diet should include a steady supply of amphipods and copepods, and over time can be weaned to a varied diet of frozen or live mysis shrimp and vitamin enriched brine shrimp 1-2 times daily.

Lasted 8 days. I will buy again. Company shipped well and packed well. Just bad luck

Dis arrived just fine. Acclimated well. Went into hiding in my live rock for about 5-6 days. Didn't seem him at all. He gradually started coming out. Now his is out all the time. Eats well.

Beautiful fish. I owned one male already, but they are such a nice show piece I decided to add another. The above description states they are found in groups or pairs. So, I though it would be fine. I received another healthy beautiful male. Minutes upon releasing him in my tank they began fighting pretty intensely. I was very worried at first. Then I realized that as vicious as the attacks were, neither fish was doing any actual damage and once dominance was established they haven't bothered each other since.
