Springeri Dottyback (Pseudochromis springeri) 

A black-colored Dottyback with two blue stripes running across the head.

Natural Ecology:
Pseudochromis springeri is a carnivore of worms and other small invertebrates.

Indigenous To:
Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.

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.
