The Swalesi Basslet is often known as Swales Swissguard Basslet, or Pacific Candy Basslet, and its scientific name is Liopropoma swalesi. It looks distinct as it has alternating horizontal stripes of purple and orange, which makes it captivating addition to any tank. It is considered one of the most active fishes, which makes it lovely to watch. The Swalesi Basslet is considered an excellent reef dweller as it doesn?t bother any crabs, snails and tube worms. We advise you to make an ideal aquarium for the Swalesi Basslet by positioning a plethora of live rocks and a substrate of sand that enable it to get hide and burrowed at night time. Its size can vary from 2 to 3 inches so it will be suitable to keep them within a tank of minimum 10 gallon. The Swalesi Basslet should be kept within a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Swalesi Basslet is semi-aggressive in nature and should not be housed with docile fishes. We advise you to keep the Swalesi Basslet in a clean tank which needs to be maintained over regular intervals as the fish are prone to dinoflagellate and protozoan infections if kept in poor quality water. The Swalesi Basslet belongs to a sociable species, and makes a good tank inhabitant. It should be given a diet that may contain finely chopped fresh or frozen marine fish, squid, mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and frozen carnivore preparations. It should be fed at least twice in a day for its continued good health.
