Fine Scaled Dottyback

(Lubbockichthys multisquamatus)

Lubbockichthys Dottybacks should be added to well established aquariums with plenty of rock work with cracks, caves and crevices for hiding. House with fish that will not pick at this shy, secretive fish. Lubbockichthys Dottybacks are hardy and easy to feed. A diet of meaty based foods should be provided daily. Lubbockichthys Dottybacks may become difficult to feed as natural prey is eliminated in the aquarium. Try providing live adult enriched Brine shrimp or Black Worms to entice a feeding response.

The Fine Scaled Dottyback are also known as Pink Dottyback. Rarely seen in the aquarium trade. Fine Scaled Dottybacks have a beautiful light pink all over body color. They can grow to a little over 3".

We recommend a minimum aquarium size of 20 gallons or larger for this species.
