Randall’s Anthias female
The Randall’s Assessor Basslet is a beautiful fish that exhibits an overall blue coloration with red accents in its fins as it matures. Additionally, a dusky purple hue can also be seen, which enhances its appeal, making it an excellent choice for reef aquariums. To keep a single Randall’s Assessor Basslet, a minimum of a 30-gallon tank is required, and a larger one is needed for more individuals. It is best to provide plenty of rock caves for hiding, as this species can be territorial and aggressive. Therefore, it is recommended to keep only one male Blue Assessor Basslet. When first introduced into the aquarium, Assessors can be shy, cryptic, and reclusive. However, with proper aquascaping that provides ample rock formations for them to dwell in, they will gradually become more visible and enjoyed. Similar to other basslet types, the Randall’s Assessor has a tendency to swim inverted or upside down. As a carnivore, the Randall’s Assessor Basslet thrives on a diet of meaty foods. You can feed them with finely chopped fresh or frozen marine fish, squid, mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and frozen carnivore preparations. It’s recommended to feed them at least twice a day to keep them healthy and happy.
