General information on Striped Dottyback
Dottybacks are tiny, vibrant basslet-like fish which live in the caves and crevices of coral reefs. Dottybacks can be housed in smaller aquariums. However, larger tanks that have plenty of live rock are ideal. They are territorial and defend the territory they have claimed as their own. Dottybacks can be housed in a variety of locations based in the capacity of the tank as well as the number of hiding spots available. There has been some success adding several dottybacks to the tank simultaneously, which lets each establish an area of defense without giving advantages to any one. Once a dottyback is used to tanks it can be difficult to bring another in without risking it being threatened.
