Mandarin Fish also known as the Blue Mandarin, Green Mandarin, Red Mandarin, Striped Mandarin or the Mandarinfish are found from the Ryukyu Islands to Australia.

Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items

The head and body of the Green Mandarin, are a mazelike combination of blue, orange, and green. Males may be distinguished from females by their more-elongated first dorsal spine. It is extremely popular with aquarists because of its unusual beauty.

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.
