  • Ondina Arrondo ❤`✿.¸¸.ღ ღ.¸¸.✿`❤

    Not to be confused with Mandarin Fish (Chinese Perch). The mandarinfish or mandarin dragonet (Synchiropus splendidus), is a small, brightly-colored member of the dragonet family, which is popular in the saltwater aquarium trade. A lesser-known species, these are probably the single most colorful and vibrant fish I’ve ever seen. The mandarinfish is native to the Pacific, ranging approximately from the Ryukyu Islands south to Australia. Yes! They are definitely the most colourful fish in the world

    Mandarinfish. This is one of the most beautiful and interesting representatives of pet tropical fish species. The name mandarinfish was given to it as the colorful pattern resembles the robes of Chinese mandarins. This fish has a magnificent palette of colors — blue, green, orange and red. It looks like a real masterpiece of an abstract painter. Mandarinfish is not very big in size; it can reach the length of only three inches.
