The Lantern Basslet, Serranus baldwini, features beautiful body markings mottled with orange, black and brown colors. Like other Basslets they should not be housed with another Basslets to avoid aggression, and are better kept with larger tank mates. 

Corals are safe from this Basslet, though they will consume smaller fish and invertebrates present in the tank. Diet should include a variety of live or frozen mysis shrimp and vitamin enriched brine shrimp as well as chopped meaty foods like clam, krill, shrimp and squid 1-2 times daily.

I got two of these guys for my 75 and love them. They were eating immediately "thawed brine" and have tons of personality. Not bashful in the least.
