The Neon Arabian Dottyback is a bright yellow/orange fish with bright blue streaks along its dorsal line and face. These are small colorful fish with a slender body that allows them to move swiftly in and out of rockwork in the aquarium.
The Neon Arabian Dottyback can be moderately aggressive, so it’s a good idea to keep only one per tank, with other moderately aggressive fish. Because of their elusive yet playful attitude and beautiful vibrant color, neon dottybacks are a great addition to the aquarium. Dottyback are most comfortable when they have plenty of places to hide. It has been said that the dottyback makes an excellent predator of bristle worms in the reef aquarium.
The diet should consist of meaty foods including brine shrimp and prepared frozen foods.
