It is also known as Psychedelic Mandarin. The Mandarin Goby should be kept in a well-established 30 gallon or larger aquarium with live rock, live sand, and plenty of hiding places. It is moderately hardy in reef aquariums, as long as it is given special care. It is not overly aggressive towards other fish, except for fish of the same species.

Really Hard to Keep
Really pretty and gorgeous fish, But not for the beginner. Please refrain from buying if you are new to the hobby.

Mandarin Goby Fish- Green
R2G are GREAT-people and animals. Lucky enough to live close enough for a tour. While there got my favorite fish so far-Mandarin Goby Fish-Green. The pair are the most spectacular fish. Tank mates extraordinaire!

Mandarin Goby
Wow! What a beauty! Added 2 to my 180 gal. Reef tank 2 weeks ago. They stay on opposite sides of the tank and are amazing to watch. You must be sure to have enough Copepods and amphipods as this is their primary diet. I went to a local retailer when I became interested in them and the prices ranged from 70-100 dollars each! Reefs2Go is the only place I now shop for my live stock! Even with overnight shipping charges (same price no matter how many you order) I have saved hundreds of dollars st...

Pair of Mandarins
I had requested 1 female and 1 male manderin. I received 1 of each as requested. I have had other fish stores not sure of the difference and the males will fight. Both fish are doing great and are even coming out front and not hiding which surprised me. Love Reefs 2 Go service and knowledge. I will definately keep buying.

Just got this in today! Was a little worried at first because Fed Ex tried to kill him, but he acclimated and is doing what he is supposed to do! My package came soaking wet, something had gotten a slight leak and the poor little guy was REALLY cold! But all is well that ends well! Love him to tears! Thanks so much for the quick ship! Everything was perfect after getting it up to temp!

Carl of Michigan
PERFECT!! The Mandarin that I received is beautful, he is much bigger than I expected and starting eating almost right away! Thanks R2G!
Toni Stabilo of Indian Orchard , MA
I ordered one of these. It was a female. I was so please with my order that I ordered another and it was a male. They are now both in the same tank . They get along great. Very healthy and busy eating pods. (I have been ordering pods with all my orders. One of the very few places you can order live copods!) They are a great addition to my seahorse tank! I plan on ordering 2 more for my other tanks. Again you've made me a happy customer!!!
Susan Burk of Seattle
Mandarins are my favorite fish hands down. They are gorgeous and I love how they flutter around the tank. These fish are not for first timers however. They are very picky eaters and require a lot of attention until it's known that they are eating. In the wild these guys live on pods. Lots of them! I but my pods from R2Go and my Mandarins are fat & happy. I supplement with prawn roe which is another food they take to quickly. I'd always back one up with the other.

Awesome fish
When I received this awesome fish he was fat and healthy its been over a month now he's still fat and healthy swimming around and enjoying his unique personality thanks reef2go for such a nice fish. Definetly would recommend getting pods with him you can never have to much food them.

Love this one
this one has bright colors, and i am buying another one thay are so COOL

Mandarin goby
Amazingly beautiful fish. It should be noted however this fish is easily out competed for food by other fish such as wrasse. It survives almost solely on pods and if a healthy refugium is not in place regular addition of pods is crucial for the mardarin gobies survival. Not a beginner fish.

pair of mandarin
very nice i was worry about the shiping at first but it make it safe, and fat might i added

Mandarin Goby
Beautiful and great fish. Will "dance" at night, if you have a mated pair. Must have LOTS of copepods to eat. Consider having a refugium or well stocked sump if you get this fish. Once that little belly starts to look sunken, it may be too late!
