The Splendid Dottyback is commonly referred to as the Splendid Pseudochromis, or Manonichthys splendens that has blue body covered with white to light yellow spotting. It has a yellow tail and a yellow mark between the eyes that makes it very beautiful addition to any tank. The Splendid Dottyback grows up to 4 inches and should be kept in at tank not less than 30 gallon. It is semi-aggressive and will not be intimidated by other fish and will defend its territory, even against fish two to three times its size. Since the Splendid Dottyback may eat small ornamental shrimp, it is considered reef safe but with caution. Its diet consists of meaty foods including brine shrimp and prepared frozen foods. The Splendid Dottyback thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. It is quite easy to care and makes a good fish for a beginner aquarist. The Splendid Dottyback has the tendency to jump out of the aquarium, so it should be kept in a covered tank to ensure its safety.
