Cherry Pygmy Basslet, Cypho purpurascens is a species of ray finned fish from the family Pseudochromidae which occurs in the western Pacific. It grows to a size of 7.5 centimetres.

Basslets are small, tropical, and often colourful percoid fishes found on reefs. Most of these fishes feed on small swimming or crawling prey, usually remain small when fully grown, and often are exceptionally colourful. However, a few grow to medium size and some related species living in cool waters can reach about 50cm in length. The smaller, and usually the more colourful species are ideal candidates for the reef-aquarium that supports living corals or other various invertebrates.
