Environment Specifics

Reef tank. A smaller tank will make the probability of disappearing much less.

A red fish with yellow stripes. It can be differentiated from the Swissguard Basslet because the colours are more vivid on the candy; a sure-fire way to tell is that the swissguard basslet has a spot on the anal fin, which the candy basslet lacks.
