The Orchid Dottyback, also known as the Fridman's Dottyback, or Fridman's Pseudochromis is an excellent addition to most reef tanks.
A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with numerous hiding places should be provided. It will tend to swim in the open after it has become acclimated to its new environment. It may occasionally chase smaller fish but will defend its hiding places from intruders. It may eat bristleworms.
The diet consists of meaty foods including brine shrimp and prepared frozen foods.
Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 3/4" to 1-1/4" Medium: 1-1/4" to 2-1/2"

What a fun fish! I named him Fox because he reminds me of a sly fox moving in and out of the live rock. He also eats everything that floats by his face. A great fish for anyone!!!
Very territorial little bugger. I would recommend putting this guy in last so that everyone else will take care of their territories once he is added. Mine would probably do better with fish more aggressive that could put him in his place.
