Product Description


Yellowlined Basslets (Gramma linki) or also known as Dusky Gramma, are characterized by the bright yellow streaks that frame their faces. They have blue-grey bodies that are normally range between 1.25 and 2.5 inches in length.


Yellowlined basslets aren’t easy to come-by; they dwell in deep water of the Caribbean, typically between 90 and 540 feet deep! As a result, we don’t have them in stock very often. They live in caves underneath ledges and you will find them quite often facing down tugged against rocks etc..


Given the depths at which these little guys live, it’s no should surprise that they prefer larger tank in comparison to their size. We recommend a minimum tank size of 30 gallons. Other than requiring a substantial space, these basslets are very easy to care for and typically do well with other tank mates. They are sociable fish with bold temperaments, so expect to find them cruising around the tank once they have properly acclimated to adjusted to their new home. Once acclimated, they will eat flakes, pellets, and live or frozen food.

Please Note:  Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined.  All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system.  If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank.  If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak.  We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we don’’t always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed.  A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.
