Mandarin Dragonet

The Mandarin Dragonet, Synchiropus splendidus, is found in the Pacific Ocean from the Ryuku Islands to Australia. It has very striking orange and aqua markings which Ocean-Aware has used to create our colorful and fun print.

Humans are the Mandarin Dragonet’s primary threat. In home aquariums, the fish’s unassuming nature and need for a specific diet make it poorly equipped to compete for food. Because of this, the average life expectancy declines from 10-15 years in the wild to 2-4 years in captivity.
