Callionymus enneactisis commonly referred to as Mangrove dragonet. Difficulty in the aquarium: There are no reports available yet that this animal has already been kept in captivity successfully. Toxicity: Toxic hazard unknown.
The offspring of Callionymus enneactis are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Callionymus enneactis, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Callionymus enneactis, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Very special thanks for the first photo of Callionymus pleurostictus to Jim Greenfield, Jim has taken his photo in Kri Island, West Papua.
ID'd by Dr Ron Fricke, a world authority on Dragonets.
