The Orchid Dottyback, also known as the Fridman's Dottyback is an excellent addition to most reef tanks. This lavender colored fish has a wonderful personality in the aquarium and will surely become the aquarium favorite. A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with numerous hiding places should be provided. It will tend to swim in the open after it has become acclimated to its new environment. It may occasionally chase smaller fish but will defend its hiding places from intruders. It will prey on pests such as small mantis shrimp and bristleworms. If more than one Pseudochromis will be maintained together in the aquarium, it is important to add them at the same time.
We sell our dottybacks at Small (less than 1"), Medium (1-1.5") and Large (1.5-2")
