Tobacco Bass also known as the Tobacco Fish are found from Bermuda and southern Florida, USA to northern Brazil. Also in Bahamas and Caribbean, including Antilles.

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 Tobacco Bass body is a light grey on the bottom and a black and silver mottled pattern dorsally, split from each other by an orange band.

This bass is a very hardy aquarium species and does best in the fish only aquarium or reef aquarium with caution. Larger Tobacco Bass can pose a threat to small crustaceans and smaller fishes, especially tiny damselfish, small gobies, and blennies. The Tobacco Bass may try to dominate smaller members of the same species, so it is best to introduce several Tobacco Bass into the aquarium at the same time if the plans are to maintain a small group. 

True of all members of the Serranus genus, the Tobacco Bass is hermaphroditic.

As a carnivore, the Tobacco Bass will thrive on a diet of meaty foods such as finely chopped fresh or frozen marine fish, squid, mysis shrimp, enriched brine shrimp and frozen carnivore preparations.
