Yellow Assessor Basslet (Assessor flavissimus)


The Yellow Assessor Basslet, also known as the Gold Assessor Basslet, boasts a vibrant yellow hue accented by red fins. With a peaceful demeanor towards invertebrates, it proves to be an ideal choice for reef aquariums.

To house a lone Gold Assessor Basslet, a minimum tank size of 30 gallons is recommended, and larger tanks are advisable for multiple individuals. Providing ample rock caves for hiding is essential. Due to its territorial nature and tendency towards aggression, it's advisable to keep only one male Gold Assessor Basslet in a single aquarium.

Being a carnivore, the Gold Assessor Basslet thrives on a diet consisting of meaty foods, including finely chopped fresh or frozen marine fish, squid, mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and frozen carnivore preparations.
