General information regarding Ring Eyed Dottyback
The Ring Eyed Dottyback (Pseudoplesiops typus) is a distinct sexual dichromatism. Male specimens are mostly pinkish red while females are more pale pink, with shades of yellow-green at the point where the caudal, dorsal, and anal fins join the body. It’s notoriously quiet the Ring Eyed Dottyback inhabits crevices in reef faces and lagoons between 20 and 30 feet. In aquariums they usually remain in the rockwork however, they will sometimes dart out from the cover to grab a piece of food once fully acclimated. Although not as aggressive as other tank mates, the Ring-Eyed Dottyback can be aggressive towards smaller species that are passive, such as nano gobies found in smaller aquariums. It is best to limit it to one per tank unless the aquarium is large.
