Fridmani Pseudochromis /purple pseudochromis

Does any one house these creatures with shrimp and how do they behave . I had one long ago and I remember him snipping at my cleaner . Is this the case with yours ?

I just added one to my 125 on Saturday. The Coral Beauty chased it a bit and it now spends most of the time on the opposite side of the tank from where the cleaner shrimp resides.

I'll keep an eye out for any aggression though.

The thing is I think they are hit or miss as to wether they will be aggressive to shrimp I am finding that it is a 50/50 shot.. I had one a long time ago he was one of our favorite fish ... I had the opportunity to get one today and did so .... I just hope he behaves if not I have another tank he can be moved to safely

Mine was in the 55 reef which is the 125 reef now. Only problem was he was a jumper which is why I dont have him now.

I've got one, and noticed it being very aggressive in my LFS, chasing around some pyjama cardinals. I was also told they can jump (my tank is open-top), and can bother shrimp. But, I got it anyway!

3 weeks later, it's doing great. It was hesitant to feed at first, but now comes right up to the surface along with my Ocellaris clown, to feed almost from my hand. It's much more timid than the clown - the dottyback rushes and hides if I stick my hand in the tank, whereas my clown rushes TO my hand and bites/nips it! Also, it's slower than the clown to get to the food, and still slightly hesitant. This is sorted by just putting more than the clown itself can eat at once, so while he's eating the dottyback can get some

He's not bothered my blood red shrimp ONCE, although the shrimp is usually in hiding. He's also not bothered my clown at all, or anything else, he's been very peaceful! He does stare closely at the shrimp, but he's never gone for him.

A fantastic fish, awesome bright colour.

Thanks Mark and Mel that is why I dont have my old one any more either he commited fishaside
The one I got today is not the normal Fridmani Pseudochromis as this one does not have the black stripe in the eye ... There is another one but it can be a bit nastier . For my sake I hope not
