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.
