After releasing the Indigo Dottyback in 2006, we continued working to refine this hybrid for its most desirable characteristics. The end result is the new ORA Electric Indigo Dottyback. The Electric Indigo differs from its predecessors by having a three color scheme instead of two. The black band running down the center of the body is more defined than that of an Indigo and the bottom portion of the fish is fresh white in color. Its most striking feature is the light blue to turquoise coloration on top. The Electric Indigo exhibits the elegant caudal filament found in its Striped Dottyback lineage. Like the Indigo Dottyback, the Electric Indigo can readily change its color depending on its mood or comfort level. Once settled in they are simply stunning. As far as Dottybacks go, the Electric Indigo is rather peaceful. Photo by ORA
