General information on Orchid Dottyback
The Orchid Dottyback is an excellent option for reef tanks of all kinds. This beautiful lavender-colored fish has a lovely personality in the aquarium and is sure to become a favorite. Orchid Dottybacks are found only in the Red Sea. They are found in colonies close to ledges where they are able to swim into and out to feast on moving Zooplankton. The fish will usually move out into the open once adapted to its new habitat. It will sometimes pursue smaller fish, but it will protect its hideouts from intrusions. It is prey for bristle worms and small mantis shrimp. Which makes it a great fish for aquariums with reefs. When there is more than one Pseudochromis, it’s essential to add them all simultaneously.
