Artist's Description

This beautiful Mandarin Goby graces my 175 gallon salt water tank with her extreme beauty. Probably the most beautiful fish I have ever had in my tank. Every time I sat down she came out to eat,I grabbed my camera and off she went to the back…I tried for over an hour to set her up and finally she came out and gave me a big fish kiss!

The Mandarin Fish is the most beautiful member of the genus Synchiropus. It is also one of the most breath-taking marine fish ever to be found in our oceans. It looks more like an intricate painting that it does a fish, its entire body is made up of wavy alternating lines of orange, blue and green.

While they are commonly known as the Mandarin Goby and the Mandarin Fish, they’re true name is the Mandarin Dragonet. It is similar to the Scooter Blenny (Synchiropus Occelatus) in this respect.
