The Orchid Dottyback is an excellent addition to most reef tanks. This gorgeous lavender coloured fish has a wonderful personality in the aquarium and will surely become the aquarium favorite. They can be found in colonies near ledges, where they can dart in and out to feed on the passing zooplankton. 

An aquarium with numerous hiding places should be provided. It will tend to swim in the open after it has become acclimated to its new environment. It may occasionally chase smaller fish but will defend its hiding places from intruders. It will prey on pests such as small mantis shrimp and bristleworms, making this fish ideal for the reef aquarium. If more than one Pseudochromis will be maintained together in the aquarium, it is important to add them at the same time.

This species can be confused with the Strawberry Dottyback (P.porphyrea) however it has a black line running through its eye.
