A 50-gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of hiding places is essential for providing an ideal environment for the Pseudochromis. The fish should be kept with larger, moderately aggressive tankmates to ensure it is not outcompeted for food and space. It is a great addition to a reef system, but it should be noted that it may consume small ornamental shrimp. Furthermore, these fish do best in established tanks that have been running for at least six months. With the right tank parameters and companions, the Pseudochromis can be a hardy and rewarding addition to any aquarium.

The Red Spotted Dottyback is a carnivore that requires a diet consisting of fresh or frozen marine fish, squid, mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and frozen carnivore preparations to thrive. It is important to feed these foods on a regular basis in order to keep this fish healthy and happy. Additionally, it is important to provide a variety of different foods to ensure that the Red Spotted Dottyback receives a balanced diet. To further ensure optimal nutrition, it is advisable to supplement the diet with vitamin-enriched foods or vitamin additives.

This purchase is for a small object that is between 3/4″ and 1-1/2″ in size.
