Banded Spiny Basslet also known as the Spiny Finned Basslet, Banded Longfin Basslet or Barred Spiny Basslet are found from Japan to Australia and New Caledonia.
Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
The Banded Spiny Basslet have an elongated, dark body with prominent vertical lines. The dorsal fin extends the entire length of the body and is highlighted in red. They make a great addition to the saltwater fish only or reef aquarium.
The Banded Spiny Basslet does well in an aquarium with plenty of live rock for hiding places and for supplemental nutrition. It will tend to swim in the open after it has become acclimated to its new environment. Only house one of this species per aquarium, unless the aquarium is very large, and they are acclimated at the same time. They will not bother invertebrates, and are a great fish for the reef aquarium. They may also help control bristleworm populations in the aquarium.
The diet consists of meaty foods including vitamin enriched brine and mysis shrimp, chopped fish and a quality flake food.
