Nice trip report.

I always thought that the larger Mandarin fish was the male and the females sequentially mated with the male. I have photos from the Philippines showing the smaller Mandarin fish bulging with eggs and the eggs coming out of the smaller Mandarin fish as the pair rose in the water. Where did you get the information that the smaller ones are the males?
