The Orangetail Dottyback tends to be relatively more introverted compared to other gregarious Pseudochromis. Therefore, the ideal setup for the Orangetail Dottyback will be an established saltwater aquarium of at least 30 gallons in size aquascaped with generous amounts of
live rock. Create ample crevices and cave for the Orangetail Dottyback to seek refuge. Upon acclimation, the Orangetail Dottyback will tend to venture no further than its favorite shelter. As the Orangetail Dottyback becomes accustomed to its new environment, it will explore greater distances. Similar to other Dottyback species, it is recommended to house the Orangetail Dottyback singly unless the aquarium is very large.
The diet consists of meaty foods including
vitamin-enriched brine and
mysis shrimp and other
prepared frozen foods.
