Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
The Giant Lined Dottyback is a large species of Dottyback making them more dangerous to its smaller tank mates. Therefore they should only be housed with more aggressive fish species such as groupers, snappers, triggers and puffers as they will eat any smaller fish and crustaceans.
The Giant Lined 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 per aquarium, unless the aquarium is very large, and they are acclimated at the same time. They will not bother invertebrates, and are a great fish for the reef aquarium. They may also 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.
