Description: The Harlequin Basslet is a very unique fish that can be hard to find at times, but when you do it’s a beautiful addition to the aquarium.  It is marbled in color with horizontal stripes.  The Harlequin Basslet is native to the Caribbean Sea and can grow up to four inches in length.

Recommended Tank Size:  The recommended minimum tank is 40 gallons if housing one fish.  If you have two, it is recommended that you have at least a 100 gallon tank or larger.  It is important to keep in mind that there should be at most a single pair of Harlequin Basslet in the tank.  The pair should be acclimated to the tank at the same time.  They also like aquariums filled with adequate live rock.  Harlequin Basslet are known for hiding behind rocks and can be protective over their favorite hiding place.  Even though Harlequin Basslet love to hide they are very active fish and love plenty of room to swim. 

Food and Diet:  In order to keep the vibrant color it is very important to feed them a variety of vitamin enriched foods.   Examples of food are brine shrimp, mysis shrimp and other smaller foods. Flake food or pellet food can be added once the fish has become established in the aquarium to supplement their diet and add more variety.
