Photo of the Week - Synchiropus splendidus

Synchiropus splendidus are endemic to the western Pacific in shallow water. They are usually found in small groups commonly around rubble fields and near reefs. A few different Dragonets are now aquacultured for the aquarium trade. We suggest having a large refugium or a large display as they are difficult to get eating frozen foods, and thus have to rely on live copepod populations. If you keep them in nano tanks, fresh Live Tigrio Copepods must continually be added.
