    They will fight with each other as they are from the same family i think and both are aggressive.

    Its reef safe. A little bit on the aggressive side but a good looking fish. its also called a purple dottyback or magenta dottyback. might become aggressive towards other dottybacks. Easy to keep.

    they also have a tendancy to attack shrimp on occasion, not all but it is within them to do so.. im not sure what the trigger for this is though..

    i personally prefer the fradmani which retains its striking color to adulthood
