  • Description
  • The Bluelined Dottyback is a rather not commonly seen dottyback in aquariums. The Bluelined Dottyback is found in the Western Pacific Ocean mostly in surge zones.

    The Bluelined Dottyback can reach a maximum size of around 3 inches, so it can be kept in an aquarium as small as 29 gallons. Bluelined Dottybacks prefer lots of swimming room and a higher flow rate in the tank. The Bluelined Dottyback has a mostly yellow body with blue fins and rows of vertical blue lines along its body.

    The Bluelined Dottyback is considered reef safe, it should not bother any coral or fish. Bluelined Dottybacks have been known to bother smaller inverts though, most of which are small shrimp.

    The Bluelined Dottyback needs a diet rich in meaty foods. Foods such as frozen mysis and brine shrimp and fresh seafood should be offered to a Bluelined Dottyback. After being acclimated to life in an aquarium, the Bluelined Dottyback should accept flake food as well.
