I do not think these fish are difficult to keep if the hobbyist does proper research before purchasing one and has a tank of the right size with plenty of LR. Of course, imo every fish should be researched before adding them to the tank.
    I would agree here, dragonet's probably are some of the easier fish to keep, but since they do usually(more like always) require a decent pod population to eat, they are not for suitable for young tanks which also means not suitable for beginners (a beginner would just be starting into salwater).

    Water is cold with ice.

    There are several species of Dragonets commonly seen and the difficulty of care varies greatly from species to species. Synchiropus picturatus, the Spotted Mandarin are ime the easiest to get to eat non-living foods, while S. splendidus, the Psychedelic or regular old Mandarin are the most difficult. It's all a % thing, some splendidus will eat pellets but I wouldn't bet the house on it happening with one I obtained. A picturatus on the other hand is a much safer bet.
