Just about everything in saltwater is colorful. If you are still in the process of planning what fish to stock in your tank then you should narrow your options a lot by tank size, type of tank (predator, fish only, reef, etc.), and what corals you will want to have (if it is a reef). From there pick what you like, check with us so we can help you make sure everything is good for the tank and together, and you should end up with a great, enjoyable tank.

If you are asking which fish are colorful you don't know enough to get a mandarine yet. They r difficult to get eating properly. 90 percent of the time they will only eat live food in your tank. And will starve to death. Especially if they have any compitition. You need at least a 70 gallon with a lot of LR. Unless you have a pod factory.

I agree with basically all SW fish are colorful. That`s why I like the SW hobby.

All u need for mandarin is an aged tank of atleast 40 gallons.. I dont know any fish names Thats why I'm asking about colorful ones because some are NOT colorful there just as plain as a freshwater fish and I didn't pay good money to house those so...

One of my absolute favorites is the flame angel, I like corals though so angels are kind of out of the question.

My lfs has a mandarin in a 50 gallon older tank and he was skinny and would not eat. They moved him to a much larger tank that he had all to himself w/corals tons of live rock and a refugium. Now he looks amazing, he would be mine but I don't have enough pods to keep him healthy.
