The Neon Dottyback is a beautiful yellow/orange color
with neon blue stripes on its dorsal fin, gill cover and tail. It's a very
popular species which was once commonly imported from the Persian Gulf, but is
very seldom harvested from the wild.


A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with hiding places should
be provided. It should be housed with moderately aggressive larger fish. It may
eat ornamental shrimp, but makes an excellent predator of bristleworms in the
reef aquarium.


The Neon Dottyback should be fed a varied diet consisting
of foods specifically designed for carnivores. If kept in a reef aquarium, the
Neon Dottyback should be fed once per day.
