The ORA® Captive-Bred Orchid Dottyback is also known as Fridman’s Dottyback, or Fridman’s Pseudochromis is an ideal aquarium addition to many reef tanks. The gorgeous, lavender-colored fish is a charming character inside the fish tank, and will definitely become the favorite of the aquarium. The Orchid Dottybacks are found only in the Red Sea. They are found in colonies close to ledges which is where they are able to swim between the ledges to feed on the moving Zooplankton.

An aquarium of 30 gallons or bigger with a variety of hiding spots must be set up. The fish may be inclined to be a bit more open once it is comfortable in its new surroundings. It can occasionally catch smaller fish but will guard its hiding spots from intrusions. It is prey for bristleworms and small mantis shrimp which makes this fish perfect for reef aquariums. When you have more than one Pseudochromis within the tank, it’s essential to add them all simultaneously.

This ORA Captive-Bred Orchid Dottyback should be fed a varied diet composed of specially designed foods for carnivores. If it is kept in a reef aquarium the ORA Captive-Bred Dottyback needs to be fed at least once every day.
