ORA announced for the month of December that they now have the Elongate Dottyback (Pseudochromis elongatus) available to fine retailers across the world. ORA has been on a tear lately with new fish being breed at their facilities and it doesn’t look like they will be letting up anytime soon. We have more pictures after the break along with official verbiage from ORA. If you would like to get one of these friendly guys, ask your favorite ORA dealer to start carrying the Elongate Dottyback.
The Elongate Dottyback is a rarely imported species known only from Sulawesi and the Molucca islands of Indonesia. This small 2 inch Dottyback is hardy and feeds easily on pellet and frozen foods. They have a black body with a red to orange head and tail, and are sometimes called the floppy-tail Dottyback. This coveted species appears to be considerably less aggressive than most of the other Dottyback species that ORA raises. Their diminutive size coupled with an agreeable attitude makes them a perfect addition to todayâ€™s popular Nano-Reef systems. Now aquacultured by ORA, this uncommon species is now available to all.
