The Red Mandarin is some what of a rarity in the hobby. It is a member of the Callionymidae family and can be found in the Philippines. In the wild they are found on silty bottoms with coral and rubble. This Dragonet grows to a maximum length of 4 inches and will require an aquarium of at least 30 gallons. In the aquarium, it's best to provide them with plenty of rockwork in which to hunt and hide. Their diet consists of Nutramar Ova, finely chopped Hikari Frozen Blood Worms, fish roe, frozen or live baby brine shrimp, frozen daphnia, and New Life SPECTRUM Small Fish Formula pellets. Some have also shown interest in Cyclopeeze. As they eat constantly all day a reef aquarium will need to be replenished with copepods. They should be placed with other peaceful fish to avoid having to compete for food.
