The Dilectis Dottyback have an elongated, dark coloured body, with beautiful white accents. They make a great addition to the saltwater fish only or reef aquarium. 

The Dilectis Dottyback does well in an aquarium with plenty of live rock for hiding places and for supplemental nutrition. It will tend to swim in the open after it has become acclimated to its new environment. Only house one of this species per aquarium, unless the aquarium is very large, and they are acclimated at the same time. They may help control bristleworm populations in the aquarium.

The diet consists of meaty foods including; vitamin enriched brine and mysis shrimp, chopped fish and a quality flake food.
