The Royal Gramma is a reef associated species that likes to live under ledges or in caves as this fish is known to swim upside down under ledges. This fish is a bicolored fish with its front half in purple while behind is bright orange-yellow. This combination of color looks stunning and vivid in any aquarium. The Royal Gramma is a hardy fish and makes a great choice for novice aquarists. It should contain live rocks, and plenty of caves to replicate shelter in the wild. The Royal Gramma fish is reef compatible and since it does not grow too large it is appropriate in smaller fish tanks. It can be kept singly or in pairs, but if you wish them to keep in a larger tank they should be introduced in a small group. The Royal Gramma is a peaceful fish but it does chase away the small fish who intend to occupy its favorite caves and spots in the aquarium. The Royal Gramma thrives well in the water with temperature range of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit, and pH range of 8.1 to 8.4. It is considered as a cleaner fish and removes ectoparasites from other fishes. The Royal Gramma can be fed with small meaty foods, e.g. brine shrimp, Mysis shrimp and it also feeds on dead food like fish flesh. It has been successfully bred in captivity. As these are smaller fishes, at least 20 gallon tank is required.

The Royal Gramma is such an amazingly beautiful fish with its bright purple front half and super yellow rear half. Their beauty and ease of care lends them to being a staple in every saltwater aquarium store. These fish prefer lots of rockwork and crevices where they can hide -- then jet out to grab a morsel of food. These fish make tremendous additions to reef tanks. Keep only one per tank and do not mix with other Basslets.The family of Basslets are closely related to Seabasses, which include Groupers.These relatively small fish are usually very colorful in nature and have large eyes.The Basslets are often found along reef walls in both shallow and deep waters. Thesefish spend their lives mostly hidden within small recesses which they rarely venturefar from.These fish spend their lives mostly hidden within small recesses which they rarely venture far from.Photo by saltwaterfish.com member, TeresaQ: Teresa Quick.
