dottyback

    I planned to add a Royal Gramma Basslet and also like the dottybacks for color. I like the Orchid, purple, bicolor, and neon dottybacks. When I mentioned my plans, one LFS guy said to add the RG Basslet and a dottyback at the same time to prevent aggression. The next visit, another employee...

    My tang doesn't seem go like the sea weed, none seem go like the omega one pellets much, they will not touch flake food but they all love frozen cubes of brine shrimp. The goby and tang will eat left over pellets in the sand and on rocks. But if I put the brine shrimp in they all come out go...

    I'm on a mission to catch a dottyback in about 30 minutes or 1 hour time. I have 5 gallon of fresh saltwater prepared in a bucket. I know which live rock and which hole the dotty is sleeping. Light is currently out. What I think of doing? take out the LR and wiggle the hole towards the fresh...

    Hi hoping for some advice. I have just noticed some white furry spots on my orchid dotty back that were not there yesterday. At first it looked like some food may have got stuck to it, but then I realised it was actually attached. White patches like fungus on the tail. I've had the fish 18...

    Hello everyone, I have a 55 gallon aquarium that has been up for about 5 months. I currently have a pair of clowns, a bangai cardinal, and a purple dottyback. I am wondering if a blennie/goby and an anthias would be good choices for the last fish to add to the aquarium and if they would be...

    Hello everyone. Today I added a Bangai Cardinal and Purple Dottyback to my 55 gallon aquarium. Along with those, I have a pair of clowns, a fire shrimp, camel shrimp, torch coral, and other invertebrates. I am wondering if all of my fish and coral will be fine and safe with the Purple...

    I have new 30 gallon (cycled) tank. I've had two clowns in the tank for about three weeks. Last week I added a Royal Gramma. Two days later I added a Neon Dottyback. So far the Gramma mostly hides in the rocks but comes out now and then. The Dottyback is out about half the time. On the two...

    My peaceful tank got disease ridden and unfortunately my fish didn't make it. Started over with new fish but are now of the semi Aggressive variety. I now have a Neon Dottyback, a pink smith damsel, a javanese damsel, a cleaner shrimp, & a diamond spotted gobygoby (my only holdover). What else...

    Hello forum, I am new here and new to the world of SW! I have a ten gallon nano with two Percula clownfish (1-1.5") and a purple dottyback that hitchhiked in some live rock. They all seem to get along but today when i looked at the smaller clown, a piece of the gill plate is simingly missing...

    Hello, so i went to petco and impulsively got a neon goby which is good for my reef and fish. But I'm not sure about the compatibility of the new neon dotty back and my reef. I all ready. Have 3 firefish, a sleeper goby, & yellow wrasse. Some one please tell me you have a nice neon dottyback: /

    So I purchased a few snails and hermits yesterday and I realized that my Neon Dottyback is really not a fan of them... two in general. He doesnt like my halloween hermit (which I find amusing since the hermit is basically just as big as him) and he doesn't like my nassarius snail. The snail came...

    hello! i recently bought a neon dottyback and added it to my 28 gallon cube, currently housing a sixline wrasse and a maroon clown. the dottyback has shown a lot of agression towards my sixline, so i rearranged the rocks and that seems to have lessened the problem, but i still see her strike...

    Hey guys, I have a Neon Dottyback that has been in my tank (12G nano) for about 2 months now. Just recently, he has started to hide more, and act strangely (laying on the bottom of the tank, no movement, appears dead or sleeping). He used to be very social, would come to the front of the tank...

    I'm feeling for opinions and insights as to what MIGHT be a suitable addition to my 30 gal in which I have a 1.5-2" saddleback clownfish and a strawberry dotty back. I emphasized might because I will settle for nothing. I understand it can be hard to acclimate fish into aquariums with...

    I have 2 mated firefish in my 110 tank and my wife had to have an orchid dottyback. So about 2 weeks ago I added an orchid to the tank and since my firefish have nearly disappeared except at feedings. That was when yesterday I saw the dotty picking on my firefish. I'm going to remove the dotty...

    I officially started my 110 gal. tank Aug 2012 and began adding fish in Nov once my tank had cycled. I added 2 true perculas early Nov and 2 weeks later 2 firefish and 1 carpenter wrasse. I think my tank will be well rounded with the following fish: -Flame Angel -Coral Beauty Angel...
