Psychedelic

Mandarinfish (Synchiropus splendidus)
The small and colorful Mandarinfish (Synchiropus splendidus) is named such because its vivid coloration supposedly evokes the robes of Imperial China's mandarins. I have to admit, however, that it reminded me more of Emilio Pucci's clothes.

Such amazing and pretty creatures that must be witnessed by taking a flight to Manila and also exploring the waters to discover more of such gems beneath the waters.
