    Picked this guy up yesterday:





    He's not fat, but not skinny either and he should do well as I have plenty of critters in the tank

    Also added a small (1/3 size of my hand) Tiger Brittle Star (Ophiolepis superba).

    I also have a purple tang and a pair of Bangaii cardinals arriving tomorrow.

    Some of you sharper eyed folks would have noticed that I have added sand

    I did notice that. I wondered if you were going to keep that tank bare bottom. LOL Nice looking Mandarin. One of my favorite fish for sure. Can't wait to see pics of the Purple.

    OK now I have no idea about marine stuff so taking a wild guess.

    Is that a madarine goby or mandarine something? Think I've seen it before and just wanted to take a stab!

    I can't wait to see the purple either.

    To be honest, I have been toying with the idea of changing to BB for the last month and I actually went to the LFS to get sand and I bought this guy as well.

    It's a mandarin fish (Synchiropus splendidus)

    I am very hesitant to call them gobies for two reasons:

    1. The term 'goby' implies they are much easier to keep than they really are

    2. They aren't gobies. They are dragonets

    what a beautiful fish
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    Mandarins are the most interesting looking fish in my book. I've always enjoyed them- best of luck to you.

    For me, I've always had trouble keeping them in larger tanks, even with very peaceful tankmates. I've had the most success between 20-30g on them. I wish they were as easy as a goby to keep- I'd have one in all my tanks!

    Congrats on the mandy, I have one also. They are great additions. Don't worry it'll be fat in no time.
