Synchiropus splendidus

The Green Mandarin Goby, also known as the Green Mandarin Dragonet, Mandarinfish, Or Mandarin Dragonet, is a vibrantly colored member of the dragonet family.  It features a beautiful pattern of green, orange, and blue all over it's body with bright orange and blue fins. 

The Green Mandarin Goby likes to feed on live foods like copepods and amphipods but can also eat frozen foods like brine and mysis shrimp.  In the wild these fish are constantly hunting for their food and can eat hundreds of copepods in a day. 

Some Green Mandarins will refuse to eat anything but live copepods and amphipods but some can be adapted to eating prepared frozen foods.  They are less likely to contract marine ich because they don't have the typical skin type that is affected by the disease. 

Gobies will also benefit greatly from live phytoplankton which is readily available to them in the wild.
