Underwater hot critters - Mandarin fish
水攝最愛主題 - 麒麟魚



世俗的名字 | 麒麟魚
Common name | Mandarinfish

The Scientific name | Synchiropus splendidus

麒麟魚交配一直都是一個熱門的水攝主題
麒麟魚很怕光也怕生,又躲在鹿角珊湖里面,不是很好拍,需要很好的中性浮力
建議拍攝的時候用紅光
峰值對焦記得要換顏色,不然就會像我...一片無言
有鹿角珊瑚的地方通常就會有他
菲律賓媽媽島、道因、朗布隆的house reef都有他
我喜歡在道因的經驗,人很少,可以很安靜不受打擾的慢慢拍
媽媽島則是不堪回首,大概是一個村的潛水員一起聚在那邊等,其中一個導潛找到
大家就會蜂擁而上,還有人拿白光直接照

Mandarin fish mating is one of the hot topics for underwater macro
They are not close to people and don't like light
Since they hide in the coastal reef, a good buoyance is important
Red light is suggested for shooting and also remember to change the focus peaking colour
I was using red under red light...
They are quite a lot of places to see them
The house reef of Malapascua, Dauin, Romblon all have them
I personally enjoy the experience in Dauin, with only few divers there
We are able to take our time quietly, nice and peacefully
The experience in Malapascua was not very good
Divers over-occupied 1 fish and someone even shoots it with white light

麒麟魚有很浮誇的外表,藍綠橘線條交織,看起來非常的貴氣
英文的意思是從中國清朝官服 ( 不就是殭屍嗎 )
麒麟魚壽命可達10-15年,為群居且固定處所,通常日落時分開始出來活動、交配
除此之外,麒麟魚是世界上少數體內擁有藍色素的生物

The appearance of Mandarin fish is amazing, with blue, green and orange bands and lines crossing over the body which make it looks elegance
It gets the name from the cloths that the government officers wear in Qing dynasty China.
Mandarin fish have an average age of 10-15 years
They live as a group in one place
Only when the sun goes down that they start their day and mating
Moreover, Mandarin fish is one of the few critters in the world that has blue pigment in body
