Orchid Dottyback (Pseudochromis fridmani)
A purple-colored Dottyback with a black stripe running through the eyes.
Pseudochromis fridmani is a carnivore of worms and other small invertebrates.
This species is one of the least aggressive species in the genus.
Usually ignores corals and most invertebrates. They may attack tiny shrimps but are useful to curb the proliferation of bristle worms.
Proaquatix specimens have been weaned to take aquarium pellets and flakes. Freshly frozen invertebrates such as ocean plankton, Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and chopped squid will be readily accepted.
