Please meet Harta, the young Mandarin Dragonet!~
I designed him for @ajentrain 's contest #ajent700contest <3 !
Harta lives with his human owner (who's name he doesn't know and also doesn't care about). He's super bratty, since Mandarin Dragonets are known for doing very poorly in captivity and thus being very hard to be kept as a pet. Nevertheless, due to their natural beauty, these fish are heavily collected from throughout the Indo-Pacific. Harta's owner has had her aquarium for over a decade and therefor is very experienced even with as picky fish as Harta. He needs his daily petting session and only eats specially prepared food (he likes to be handfed, Harta loves the attention<3). The other fish don't really bother with his attitude, he's too young to be taken seriously yet :') and it's almost cute how he thinks he owns the world when he's never even seen the ocean once (he'd probably wouldn't survive in the wild anyway) He's still the only Mandarin Dragonet in the aquarium, but he might have to grow up a little, because ms. owner is planning on getting another one soon... Fun Fact: Mandarin Dragonets can also be found around Indonesia, thus the name “Harta“, which is Indonesian Origin and means "Treasure". #weemina_oc#mandarindragonet#mandaringuppy#fish#aquarium#instaart#oc#originalchracter#originalcharacterart#digitalart#photoshop#drawing#アニメ#マンガ#イラスト#イラストレーション#zeichnung
