ORA Neon Dottyback
Neon Dottyback - Pseudochromis aldabraensis
The Neon dottyback is a beautiful orange color with neon blue stripes on the dorsal fin, gill cover and tail. A similar species, P. dutoiti, found along the East African coast is almost identical with some authors claiming they are the same fish. This is a very popular reef tank species which was commonly imported from the Persian Gulf, but now is hardly ever seen from the wild. They grow to about 4 inches in length, one of the larger dottybacks.
The Neon dottyback can be aggressive in community tanks with small fish and it is suggested that they are introduced as one of the last fish to the tank. They prefer rocky shelter and live alone in caves and crevices.
Once a pair of Neon Dottybacks has spawned, under ideal conditions they will usually spawn every 10 days. The eggs hatch in 5-6 days and will remain as larval fish for about 30 days until metamorphosis.
