The Neon Dottyback, scientifically known as Pseudochromis aldabraensis, is a captivating and highly sought-after saltwater fish species that adds a burst of vibrant color and personality to marine aquariums. With its striking neon blue and purple hues, the Neon Dottyback is a true gem that will elevate the visual appeal of your aquarium.


The Neon Dottyback showcases a brilliant combination of electric blue and rich purple colors, creating a visually stunning and dynamic display. Their small size and graceful movements make them an eye-catching addition to reef aquariums. However, caution is advised when keeping them with other fish, as they can be territorial and aggressive toward similar species.


These dottybacks are known for their inquisitive behavior and willingness to explore their surroundings. They prefer hiding spots and rock formations where they can establish their territory and observe the aquarium from a safe vantage point.


Caring for the Neon Dottyback involves creating a stable environment with appropriate water parameters. They thrive in stable water conditions with appropriate salinity, temperature, and pH levels. A well-established aquarium with hiding spots and live rock will contribute to their well-being. They primarily feed on a carnivorous diet, accepting high-quality marine pellets, frozen foods, and small live prey.


Water Parameters:

  • Temperature: 72-78°F
  • pH: 8.1-8.4
  • Salinity: 1.023-1.025
