Notes for care:
These beautiful purple and black fish are the perfect addition to a reef tank that lacks character and curiosity. These fish seem to be interested in what is around every corner when introduced to a tank. They are active after acclimation and are usually first to try to grab protejn rich foods from the top of the water. These fish are naturally found in a range of shallow to very deep water.
Be cautious to make sure they are the only basslet species in your tank. Others that challenge their territory are subject to aggressive action to reclaim their spot. If their needs are met, they will be one of the most colorful and happy fish you add to your tank!
