From southern Florida, USA and Bahamas to northern South America.
Not sexually dimorphic. Close examination required.
Mixes well as it is peaceful.
Carnivorous; eats a wide range of foodstuffs.
Reef tank. A smaller tank will make the probability of disappearing much less.
It is relatively shy, and reclusive.
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.
