Assessor Basslets are ideal for both FOWLER and reef aquariums. They are reef safe, and have a small adult size. Though they aren’t particularly peaceful but are on the more easy going side. This means they have a wide variety of fish they can be placed with, though the most and least aggressive fish would probably both be questionable choices. This basslet enjoys overhangs and caves that hang around in and can even be seen chilling upside down under the overhangs. They prefer those hiding spots because that is a natural habitat for them. They will be most active in lower light parts of the day, though they will learn to be active during daylight once they correlate that with feeding time. A diet of meaty foods, such as squid and enriched brine shrimps should be offered twice a day for continued health. Cautionary note: provide a tight fitted top to the aquarium since assessors are known to jump when startled.
The Yellow Assessor hails from the Coral Sea and the waters around Australia. Their bodies are entirely yellow with vibrant red outlining on the dorsal and anal fins. This Assessor also has an reddish-orange streak going through their eyes.
