  1. General Reef Discussion
    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...

    Anyone have any experience with a purple pseudochromis and a royal Gramma in the same tank? I saw some pseudos at the LFS today and I was wondering if they would kill each other. I know they're territorial and sort of bullies but if they were in a 55 gallon with plenty of rock work for territory...

    I've had my 55 gallon FOWLR tank set up for around three months, and recently I added a purple pseudochromis and a goldenhead sleeper goby at the same time. The pseudochromis is doing fine with my pair of ocellaris clowns, but the goby barely comes out of hiding and it hasn't eaten. The pseudo...

    Can anyone help identify this white spot on my Purplestripe Dottyback's eye? I just noticed it today. It seems to be trying to rub it on the rocks. Thanks for any help! :confused:

    Okay... I am extremely upset about the death of my brand new orchid dottyback. In what seemed to be overnight, or near first light. I found him behind my rockwork, as I started to see movement, which were my nassarius snails seemingly heading towards him. He was laying somewhat sideways...

Now he hasnt fought in 2 days, he isnt chasing any other fish around and hes a really cool little fish.. Should i give him another try or...

    I had a magenta pseudochromis and yellowtail damsel in a 5g nano reef. I moved to a 10 gallon and am cycling it with the damsel. The Pseudochromis "dottyback" was way too agressive for the damsel and tore up his fins, but i still would like a great colored fish like that in the new tank. Any...

    So here is my growing Reef plan: I am planning a lagoon style biotope. I want it to look like an indo pacific lagoon but really like the red sea pseudochromis and clown fish. I think it is rather difficult to get coral from the mideast so, I will settle for indo-pac species. Corals : Kenya Tree...
