Splendid Dottyback, also known as the Splendid Pseudochromis, has a blue body covered with white to light yellow spotting. It also has a yellow tail and a yellow mark between the eyes. Originating from Indonesia, this species can be territorial in smaller aquarium set-ups, maintaining with larger tank mates is ideal.

A 30-gallon or larger aquarium provides a good environment. It will not be intimidated by other fish and will defend its territory, even against fish two to three times its size. It will eat small ornamental shrimp.
