Western Australian Mandarin Dragonet (Synchiropus picturatus occidenta

Recommended Posts

Just to share a new recent discovery of rare dragonets during 2012.. Really like it's colouration.. Wondering if it has already reached our local LFS.. If anyone have seen it in LFS, please let me know! :pinch:

It has been discovered long before 2012 just that there is no collection of the fish due to locality and very few picture exist before it was being collected in few months back in a new locality.. I know of a source for one but the price will be hard to swallow for most reefers...

lodging transportation etc, very inconvenient over there. it is also accessible during a certain period of time only, not to mention how troublesome WA gvt are.
