Incredible Mandarinfish (Synchiropus splendidus, Vretenka mandarin) from Morsky svet / Sea world in Prague, Czech republic :aww:

Story of the photo: I have always dreamed about having this fish in my gallery :heart: so when I spotted this amazing creature during browsing through the Sea world Prague, I got totally excited. For many minutes, I tried to take a shot of it. It was very difficult and I failed many many many times, but finally I managed to gain at least this photo :D

Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:

I love mandarinfish too! I've never seen striped mandarinfish in real life, I've only seen a spotted one, and I have pictures of that fish in my gallery. I've only seen 1 mandarinfish in my life! I want to see the striped someday... Anyway, amazing photo! It's so vibrant and focused!

I love Mandarinfish! I recently started a story with merfolk (based off of real fish) and my Prince is one of these.

my aquarium buddies that have this fish say that it's a chore to get it to start eating but as soon as it does they are great fish but they require a lot of care XP but are surprisingly cheap!

it is probably really hard to keeep them, they also live 15 years in the wild, but only 10 in captivity...

im not sure about that fact :P
you should see some of the aquariums people keep at home :faint: absolutely gorgeous
and I know that they have successfully spawned in aquariums before too
;P i want to get one but i wont until i move into my own place since im not allowed to have more tanks or get a bigger one (which will not be for a long time) right now im quite content with my good old 30 gallon XD

i love mandarin gobies! i really want to get one someday for my home aquarium, but they are very picky eaters and difficult to keep healthy. so i want to wait until we are more experienced and can take of one right.

i have his easier cousin, a "scooter blenny" (Synchiropus ocellatus). he is a very funny fish. if i have not fed him yet that day and he sees me in the room, he dances around in the water to get my attention. but only if it is me, not other people. :D he kind of looks like this: [link]

(though his fin is not so big, but don't tell him i said that! also, the fin is down most of the time.)
