Mandarin Fish

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, their true name is the Mandarin Dragonet. It is similar to the Scooter Blenny (Synchiropus Occelatus) in this respect.
