The Royal Gramma, Gramma loreto, is a bicolored fish with its front half purple and its back half a bright orange/yellow. It is one of the most recognizable species of basslet in the aquarium trade. It is also a great fish for beginner aquarists as it is hardy, easy to care for, and friendly. They prefer tanks with plenty of live rock creating ledges and caves for it to hide in. They are generally peaceful but will amusingly chase away other fish trying to explore their favorite caves. The Royal Gramma is reef safe, can be kept singly, in pairs, or in small groups in larger tanks, and needs only a tank of at least 20 gallons. The Royal Gramma can be a beneficial member of your tank as well as they are known to remove ectoparasites from the bodies of other fishes. They will eat a diet of brine and mysis shrimp as well as food pellets and flakes. The Royal Gramma is one of those fishes that you just can't go wrong with. They are beautiful, active, playful, friendly, and hardy.
The Royal Gramma Basslet brings an explosion of color to any saltwater aquarium. It has a bright purple to violet colored anterior contrasted by a vibrant yellow posterior. Coveted for both its unique color pattern and relatively small adult size, Gramma loreto is well suited for small nano reef systems.
Native to the deep-water reefs of the Caribbean, this member of the Grammidae family prefers extensive rockwork caves in which to hide and somewhat subdued lighting. Since it demonstrates territorial aggression towards its own kind, the Royal Gramma Basslet should be housed singly. However, most Royal Gramma Basslets are peaceful towards tankmates of similar size and temperament.
