The Gold Basslet, also known as the Golden Mini Grouper, is entirely yellow with red outlining the fins. The Basslet will not bother invertebrates making it an excellent choice for reef aquariums.
For a single Gold Assessor Basslet, provide at least a 30-gallon tank – larger for more individuals, and plenty of rock caves for hiding. Due to its aggression and being territorial, it is best to keep only one male Basslet in a single aquarium.
As a carnivore, the Basslet will thrive on a diet of meaty foods such as finely chopped fresh or frozen marine fish, squid, Mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and frozen carnivore preparations. Feed at least twice a day.
The Golden Basslet is an absolutely stunning fish that adapt well and will quickly become the centerpiece of any aquarium. They are seldom seen in the aquarium hobby because they live 300+ feet deep! Because members of the Liopropoma genus that inhabit deeper waters are prone to swim bladder issues, our biologist works with a veterinarian and takes extra time to make sure that each Golden Basslet in completely neutrally buoyant for at least 1 month before shipping them out. Please contact the team at Among The Reef if you have any questions on if this may be the right fish for you!
