Fishy Monday On Tuesday: Black Cap Basslet

Today for Fishy Monday I'm going to tell you about the Black Cap Basslet.

The Black Cap Basslet is a relative of the Royal Gramma Basslet and the Blue Assesor Basslet,2 of my older posts.It is a quite shy fish and intends to hide in coral beads.It is also not very common in tanks because they live so deep underwater.It is purplish pink with a bright purple tail and back.It gets its name from the black spot on its head.It will not attack other fish for it is a quite peaceful fish.This fish is an omnivore,meaning it feeds on meat and plants,like algae.It will eat things like shrimp,crustaceans,algae,and sometimes coral.It is found in the Atlantic ocean,mostly near the Caribbean.At adult size it is around 4 inches long,one of the medium sized basslets.The largest basslet I know of is the Marine Beta,measuring up to 8 inches!

That's my report on the Black Cap Basslet.I got the info from and the picture from Bing Images.The End.
