I just got an orchid dottyback and now I am having regrets. Some the information I am reading says that they are aggressive. I have a tomatoe clown and a six line wrasse in with him so far but I want to have a tang and some other fish. Is this dottyback going to stress any new fish out when I introduce them? Some of the articles that I have read also have stated that the orchid is calmer than most dottybacks but I am worried that he will be a problem. Does anyone have any experience with this fish in a reef tank?
I have one but I added him last. He actually seems to be the most docile fish that I have. He even gets pushed around by my royal gramma, who was one of my first fish . A yellow tang will certainly not be bothered by it, mine rules my tank. What other fish are you thinking of getting? The order in which you add them is very important!

I have a purple dottyback in my 90gal tank with a yellow tang, lunar wrasse, striped damsel, clowns and many chromis and he gets along with every one even though I was told he would be aggressive. I believe each fish has its own personality.
