Hi guys first post. I bought two dottybacks that were sold as Splendids but a few things pointed to them being a bit different from the regular splendens pics i've seen. They are both about 2 inches with one having darker coloration. The differences i can see :- Torso colors (half yellow), the pelvic fins (yellow, red dot), and the face (purple no stripe). Here are the pics, crappy quality but the best i could do. The darker colored one is pictured :-

Supposedly caught in the Phillippines, is this a color variant? Juvenile coloration? They're both in a 3 x 1.5 x 1.5 foot BB tank with some pipes and some live rock. Had them for a a few weeks with the darker one dominating. Any input is appreciated. Thanks :)

I wonder if this is not the cf. alleni in Witt's book? page 178?

It does look like it, but without the vivid colors. Perhaps adult coloration? I found another photo on google which was an exact match from a Japanese diver off the coast of Sabah Malaysia a while back, haven't been able to find it since. Thanks Mpedersen.

Hi Jin,

How are the P. alleni doing? Are they an aggressive species compared species like orchid dottybacks? Spotted the same variant at one of my LFS but gave it a pass.

William, is this variant considered rare?
I love Artemac!

The White tailed variant I can get almost as easy as a splendid. In the last year I've seen them come in on 4 different occasions, to 3 different stores using 3 different wholesalers.

The yellow variant I've never seen in person.
