Dottybacks are strikingly unique, with bright popping color making them easy to identify. They have a bold presence in a coral or rock reef environment, and are not shy. Using their elongated body, they fit in and between the live rock with ease. Dottybacks do not get along with other Dottybacks unless they are a male and female pair. They are a high energy fish and should be offered a few meals a day consisting of meaty seafoods, flakes, and pellets.
