Aquarium Conditioned-Scooter Dragonet
Aquarium Conditioned-Scooter Dragonet, Synchiropus ocellatus.
We are excited to offer Scooter Dragonets. These fish are very beautiful and unique with their mottled coloration throughout their body. These fish graze for micro-organisms such as copepods on live-rock and sand. For this reason an established aquarium with lots of live-rock and sand is a must for this species to thrive. We are feeding them a variety of live Artemia nauplii, Artemia, frozen Mysis shrimp, frozen Calanus and a variety of other foods at our farm. They are also taking TDO pellets that we offer. These little fish are full of personality.
Our Aquarium Conditioned fish are quarantined and observed at our aquaculture facility before offered for sale. We prophylactically deworm all our fish as well as run an anti-parasitic treatment on all of our fish.
Size: ~2 inches. They will reach up to ~2-4 inches with maturity.
We recommend housing this species singly or as a pair. They can be kept in a group with one male and 1-3 females. It is best to add them at the same time to the aquarium if kept in as a pair or in a group. They are peaceful fish and friendly to keep with our captive bred seahorses.
