      Scientific Name: Pseudochromis flavivertex
      Max. size: 7.2 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine; depth range 2 - 30 m
      Distribution: Western Indian Ocean: Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.
      Biology: Occurs usually around bases of small rocks or coral heads on sandy bottoms. Has been reared in captivity.
      Aquarium Care: This species is a moderately aggressive dottyback, and is suitable for some community situations. It may tolerate other dottybacks or a speciemen of the opposite sex, provided plenty of hiding places and attention is paid to the subordinate individual. May eat smaller ornamental crustaceans, small stomatopods, and fireworms. The Sunrise Dottyback may be intimidated by larger tankmates, which causes it to hide constantly. Feed a variety of meaty foods, and color-enhancing foods, as it may lose its coloration. Has been known to attack cleaner shrimps.
