With its royal purple body and jet-black diagonal cap make the Black Cap Basslet a stunning addition to any tank. Only requiring 30 gallons they are the perfect nano reef additions but do well in a large tank as well swimming amongst the rocks in your aquarium.
Because of their consumption of only small invertebrates of Copepods, Isopods, or Amphipods they are considered reef safe and are an easy fish to care for. They are very territorial and prefer to be the only basslet in the tank.
