Abyssrium Wikia

The Orchid Dottyback is a species of Dottyback found in Tap Tap Fish: Abyssrium. They are the thirty-third species listed on the Saltwater Tank's Normal Fish list, and the second Dottyback.


The Orchid Dottyback is almost entirely light magenta, with the exception of its sharp, translucent, white pelvic fin and a small purple marking around its eye. Its pectoral and tail fins are slightly lighter than the rest of its body.


To unlock the Orchid Dottyback, the player must own Orange Cup Coral and create any combination of 5 Angels. It is unlocked, therefore, simultaneously to the Royal Dottyback and the Diadem Dottyback.

2 Orchid Dottybacks are required to fuse a Strawberry Dottyback, along with 100 Seaweed, 20 Clams and 5 Sea Urchins.

The Orchid Dottyback counts toward the Dottyback total, helping to unlock Butterflies.


The Orchid Dottyback, also known as the Friedman's Dottyback, is a popular aquarium fish that is captive-bred. It feeds on many types of foods designed for carnivores, and only needs to be fed once every day[1]. It tends to be nervous and protective of its hiding places at first, but will gradually become acclimated to its climate and swim in more open waters.
