The Deepwater Candy Basslet
is an eye-catching addition to the home saltwater aquarium. Displaying an elongated body of orange and lavender horizontal stripes and accented with red lines. Similar to the Swiss guard and the Swales Basslet, but easily identified by their intense coloration.An excellent peaceful reef-dwelling fish, however, the Deepwater Candy Basslet
may pose a threat to smaller, ornamental crustaceans that can fit into their mouth. Provide at least a 10-gallon tank for a single individual.
As a carnivore, the Deepwater Candy Basslet will thrive on a diet of meaty foods including marine fish, crustacean flesh, mysis shrimp, and quality frozen preparations.
