The Elongate Dottyback originates from Sulawesi and the Molucca Islands of Indonesia. Sporadic appearances in the aquarium hobby kept the Elongated Dottyback in relative obscurity.
More notable is its relative peaceful demeanor compared to other dottybacks. Though less aggressive, the Elongated Dottyback is not a skittish fish. Once adjusted to its new environment, the Elongated Dottyback will spend time in the open to explore. This diminutive dottyback poses minimal threat to crustaceans and ornamental shrimp making it an excellent candidate for reef aquariums of all sizes.
The ideal setup for the Elongated Dottyback will be an established saltwater aquarium of at least 30 gallons in size aquascaped liberally with generous amounts of reef rock. Create ample crevices and caves for the Elongated Dottyback. Similar to other Dottyback species, it is recommended to house the Elongated Dottyback singly unless the aquarium is very large.
