Gero Rinaldo Pesce mandarino (Synchiropus splendidus): Di piccole dimensioni (6 cm), questo pesce presenta una testa tondeggiante, con occhi sporgenti. Il corpo è allungato e cilindriforme. È un animale sociale che vive in piccoli gruppi. L'accoppiamento dei pesci mandarino avviene di notte: la coppia esce dai coralli in cui si nasconde, repentinamente nuota verso l' alto e poi maschio e femmina emettono contemporaneamente uova e sperma.

Stefano Oglietti Belli i Mandarin!!!
