The Tobacco Basslet is commonly referred to as the Tobacco Fish and the Tobacco Bass. With its light gray colored body along with black and silver mottled pattern on the top which are split from each other by an orange band, the Tobacco Basslet makes a gorgeous addition to any tank. The Tobacco Basslet is a hardy aquarium species; however, caution must be used when housed in a reef tank, since it poses a threat to small crustaceans. It should not be housed with small and fish, especially damselfish, gobies, and blennies. Instead it should be kept only one per tank of 50 gallons. It is best if the Tobacco Basslet is introduced into the aquarium at the same time as other fish. The Tobacco Basslet is a carnivore and it will thrive on a diet of meaty foods such as finely chopped fresh or frozen marine fish, squid, mysis shrimp, and frozen carnivore preparations. It grows up to 7 inches in the wild and need a larger aquarium. The Tobacco Basslet thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. It needs a brightly lit aquarium and feeding should be 1 to 2 times per day.
