Diet[edit | edit source]

The Chalk Bass is known to be a picky eater. Pellets are too large for their small mouths. Therefore, they need either flake food or brine shrimp in order to survive.

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

The Chalk Bass is an extremely relaxed fish. They are harmonious in nature and enjoy mass amounts of hiding places around the tank, yet will come out to explore during the day and night time.
