Captive Care: This very colorful Basslet is one of my favorites. A curious fish that isn’t afraid to come out in the open and flash his beautiful colors. These fantastic fish will fit right into most tanks and don’t require a huge tank to enjoy them. The Tobacco Basslet comes out of the Caribbean, so it’s not seen in the trade nearly enough! These guys will eat small ornamental shrimp so be aware of this if you have them in your tank.
