It is among the hardiest of fish and is very easy to maintain, that makes it a very good choice for beginner aquarists. This little beauty can be aggressive towards other smaller fishes in the tank, hence should be kept singly and should not be mixed with other Basslets or Dottybacks. The Purple Pseudochromis should be provided with ample rock work, and do well in a community tank. It will remain in its caves or crevices and comes out only when it will be fed. The Purple Pseudochromis looks stunning in any tank with their dramatic coloration. It is capable of changing sex, and when the eggs are laid, the male is known to carry these eggs in its mouth to keep it aerated. The Purple Pseudochromis is only aggressive towards similar looking species, it generally mixes well with other fishes. The Purple Pseudochromis is great for reef tanks and makes a great addition to it. If you wish to have a group of this little beauty in your tank, introduce all the Purple Pseudochromis fish at a time so that it gets along well with each other at the time of acclimatizing and lessens the territorial behavior. The Purple Pseudochromis can be fed with frozen foods such as Mysis shrimp or Brine shrimp which are readily accepted by this beautiful fish.
