Mandarin fish (Synchiropus splendidus) are tropical, bottom dwelling fish found on coral reefs and shallow lagoons throughout much of the western Pacific. These fish are distinctive due to their unusual shape and intense coloration.

Did you know: These fish are quite small, reaching a maximum length of 6 cm and they exhibit sexual dimorphism — the males are notably larger than females?
