The Black Neon Dottyback (P. aldabraensis x P. springeri) is a hybrid between the Springer's Dottyback (P. springeri)  and the Neon Dottyback (P. aldabraensis). It has a black or brown body with neon blue stripes that cover its face and dorsal section. Rarely occurring in the wild, the Black Neon Dottyback is typically bred in captivity. They reach a maximum size of 3 inches, do well singly or in a pair, and can be housed in an aquarium with at least 30 gallons with plenty of live rock. Lids are recommended, as dottybacks can jump through small openings. They may be semi-aggressive towards tankmates, so they should be housed with fish of similar temperament. They are carnivorous and require a meaty diet, typically consisting of mysis, krill or brine.
