Caption: Picturesque dragonet (Synchiropus picturatus). This fish is also known as a mandarinefish. The bright markings on this fish deter predators from eating it as it portrays toxicity. It also uses its markings as a colourful display to attract potential mates. Photographed in Maratua Atoll, off Maratua Island, in the Sulawesi Sea, Indonesia.
