Tank Mates: The Ruby Red Dragonet spends much of its time perched, showing off its beauty, and hopping across the tank floor. The Ruby Red Dragonet can reach a size of 2 inches, and should be kept in a tank no less than 20 gallons if kept individually, and no less than 40 gallons if kept in a pair.
Reef Tank Compatible?: Yes
Diet / Foods: They have small protruding mouths used to capture microfauna such as Copepods and are similar to the popular Mandarin Dragonet. Its diet consists mainly of Copepods so it is best suggested to introduce them into an established reef tank with plenty of live rock, and an ample Copepods colony. In addition, offer small meaty items such as vitamin-enriched Brine shrimp, finely chopped Mysis shrimp, finely chopped Krill etc; however, be sure to make the food offered is a small enough size for the Ruby Red Dragonet to eat.
