8.0 - 8.5
22.2-25.6°C (72 -78 °F)
- Peppermint Basslet
From southern Florida, USA and Bahamas to northern South America.
Not sexually dimorphic. Close examination required.
Mixes well as it is peaceful.
Carnivorous; eats a wide range of foodstuffs.
Reef tank. A smaller tank will make the probability of disappearing much less.
A relatively peaceful species that mixes well. Although bolder than fellow species, it is still relatively shy, and reclusive.
A red fish with yellow stripes. It can be differentiated from the Candy Basslet because the colours are more muted on the swissguard; a sure-fire way to tell is that the swissguard basslet has a spot on the anal fin, which the candy basslet lacks.
