The Cave Basslet, Liopropoma mowbrayi, is commonly referred to as the Cave Bass and the Ridgeback Basslet. With its beautiful coloration of red with blue and yellow markings, it makes a beautiful addition to your home aquarium. The Cave Basslet is considered one of the most active fishes, which makes it lovely to see. The Cave Basslet is not at all reef safe as it eats up the crabs, snails and tube worms as well. The Cave Basslet belongs to an unsociable species in the wild, and it generally feeds on small fishes and invertebrates, so is not considered to be a good reef dweller. We advise you to make an ideal aquarium for the Wrasse Bass by positioning Live rock to create many caves, and a substrate of sand that will enable it to get hide and burrowed at night time. This Basslet can grow to be 6 inches, so it is best kept in a tank no smaller than 50 gallons. The Cave Basslet is aggressive in nature and should not be housed with docile or peaceful species. We advise you to keep the Cave Basslet in a clean tank which you will need to maintain over regular intervals as the fish are prone to dinoflagellate and protozoan infections if kept in poor quality water. The Cave Basslet has a carnivorous diet, and will eat Lobster, enriched Brine shrimp, Mysis Shrimp, Mussel, Krill, chopped Clam, and Bloodworms. The Cave Basslet should be kept within a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4.
