Only recently discovered in 2010, this species is similar in behaviour to its close cousin, the undisputedly awesome reef tank fish, the Royal Gramma. Incredibly hardy, easy to keep, outgoing, and a veritably peaceful reef-safe citizen that can fit in nearly any size aquarium.
Distinguished marine biologist and ornamental fish breeder Todd Gardner and his team produce these in the Biota North Carolina lab. This species produces a small number of offspring, so they are still quite rare despite being captive-bred. If you are looking for a stunning show fish with the confidence and low risk of a hardy, robust species, the Golden Basslet is for you.
This species does well in small to large tanks, but the ideal tank size is 30+ gallons.
