Place of origin: 
Southern Japan, Kerama and Ryukyu Islands, and south to Taiwan. Mainly in large shaded caves on well-protected inner reefs. Usually occurs singly or in small groups and appears to be uncommon, bur is easily overlooked due to its small size, dark colour, and somewhat secretive behaviour in caves. Dark blue overall and yellow spotting on median fins, and recognised best by its shape and behaviour. Length to 50mm.

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.
