Neon Dottyback (Pseudochromis aldabraensis) 

Description:
An orange-colored Dottyback with a blue stripe that runs along the dorsal body, fins, and dorsal caudal fin. Two additional short blue stripes appear on the head.

Natural Ecology:
Pseudochromis aldabraensis is a carnivore of worms and other small invertebrates. This species is highly territorial towards conspecifics.

Indigenous To:
Eastern coast of Africa, southwards to South Africa.

Behavior: Often seen near an area where a quick retreat into rocks is possible.

Compatibility:
Usually ignores corals and most invertebrates. They may attack tiny shrimps but are useful to curb the proliferation of bristle worms.

Food:
Proaquatix specimens have been weaned to take aquarium pellets and flakes. Freshly frozen invertebrates such as ocean plankton, Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and chopped squid will be readily accepted.
