Purple Dottyback (Pseudochromis porphyreus)
Shipping and Returns policy
Live Arrival Guarantee
Our Dottybacks, Pseudochromis fridmani, are captive bred. They are eating a variety of captive foods. These fish are simply stunning. Purple dottybacks require a tank of 24 gallons or more with lots of rock for hiding places.
In aquariums, Purple Dottybacks are small plankton feeders so foods such as brine shrimp, krill and mysid shrimp are perfect. Orchid Dottybacks are moderately territorial. More than one can be kept per tank, as long as the aquarium has plenty of hiding spaces. Usually, adding multiple small individuals at once will result in a spawning harem.
It is guaranteed for live arrival.
