The Red variety of the Mandarin fish is a rare find in the industry and is extremely popular with aquarists because of its unusual beauty. Unlike the green mandarin, this red variant has much wider and more pronounced red stripes and red pectoral fins.
It should be kept in a well-established 30 gallon or larger aquarium with live rock, live sand, and plenty of hiding places. It is moderately hardy in reef aquariums if given special care. It is not overly aggressive towards other fish, except for conspecifics.
The Mandarin has been known to spawn successfully in an aquarium.
They feed on a variety of vitamin-enriched live brine shrimp, live black worms, and natural prey on live rock and live sand.
