Hi, got a sunrise dottyback in my 5gal. reef tank. Initially set up home by creating many tunnels around the living rock so he can pop up anywhere! Constantly on the watch from caves in the rock from which he comes out to grab food and retire. Not on display much and examines any new addition to the tank closely? Does not like other fish in his domain and my Green Banded Goby keeps well away in his cave and watches for him constantly. Bad choice on my part for such a small tank would be better in a large tank where he could have his own spot instead of a whole tank.
