    Additional Information & Description

    Blue Male Mandarin Dragonet

    LiveAquaria says min tank size is 30 gal, but I feel it would have to be a really established reef tank if so.. or at least get one that eats things other than just copepods

    Such a cute little fish! I would love to have a nano that was plumed into my big system (to keep a good supply of pods) but give this guy his own space. One of my favorite non-owned fish

    They are the coolest fish, someday I hope to have one.
    I was watching one at Reef Paradise a couple days ago in the big display tank, so cool to watch him run around the rock looking for a snack.
