Blackcap Basslet

The Blackcap Basslet is not aggressive, but can be territorial towards any fish that invades its space or home. Like other basslets, this species stays relatively small making it a perfect reef tank inhabitant. Although more than one can be kept in a tank, the basslets should be introduced simultaneously.

Blackcap Basslet - Living Environment
Small groups do best in large tanks in excess of 100 gallons or more. Does best with plenty of hiding places as well as open swimming room.
