The Candy Basslet
The Candy Basslet belongs to the Serranidae fish family and is a resilient fellow, although a little on the small side and quite shy. They like to play peek-a-boo in caves and holes and as time goes on may get braver in terms of venturing out more to meet their tank-mates. You can’t miss them when they do come out to say hello – they are very bright and colorful – orange, purple and red. In the wild they reside in the deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean off the Bahamas, Caribbean and Florida. They are rare and are not very often available to purchase, which means they come with a hefty price tag.
