Small bugs that can live in your aquarium. Can be hard to keep the numbers up with these guys and can starve to death. Just like mandarins, though I don't recall if they are dragonettes too but I believe so.

They are dragonets. It is a very difficult fish to keep if you don't have a well established refugium.

+1. Usually seems ok for awhile but then dies unexpextedly. If you do want one, id recommend ordering a batch of pods to supplement your tank

And a large batch. They are odd little fish. I just caught my mandarin eating mysis last night, chasing it around with the other fast swimmers in my tank when I broadcast feed. Totally new behavior but happy none the less. Very odd he started that.
