  • Description

    Please note that the product information displayed is provided by manufacturers, suppliers and other third parties and is not independently verified by Petco.

    The Spotted Mandarin looks like a work of art within your aquarium. They are reef safe and should be housed in aquariums with rockwork and sand beds because it serves as protection as well as provides a natural food source. The live rock and sand act as a refugee for copepods to breed, which the Spotted Mandarin will feed on. They have a small adult size of about 3" and are a great candidate for smaller aquariums. The Spotted Mandarin is also known as the Psychedelic Mandarin due to its elaborate colors and patterns. They have a brownish tan colored body and "psychedelic" spots of blue, green orange and black. The Spotted Mandarin does display sexual dimorphism, which makes pairing simpler. The males are more colorful and have an elongated dorsal fin, while the females' dorsal fin is short and smaller. The Spotted Mandarins are found in the Indo-West Pacific inhabiting the shallow protected reefs and lagoons.

  • Petco takes great care to ensure that the Live Fish, Invertebrates & Plants you order arrives safely and in healthy condition.

  • ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.

  • If we need to contact you for any reason about your order, shipping of your package may be affected. Once your order is placed, you will receive a confirmation email with your order summary. Orders are subject to verification of payment information by phone or email.
