Orchid Dottyback

There is a certain wow-factor over the Orchid Dottyback. The striking deep purple coloration is mesmerizing to most people and we could not help noticing that is a favorite with most female aquarists. Another characteristic is the black line that runs from the tip of the nose and through the eye on each side of the head. Mature males can sometimes be recognized by an elongation of the lower half of the caudal fin. The Orchid Dottyback is native to the Red Sea and limited collection from this area makes it increasingly difficult to come by wild collected fish. Fortunately, we have included this species in our breeding program and captive bred Orchid Dottybacks are readily available from Sea & Reef Aquaculture.
