Gramma - Emperor
Gramma brasiliensis
Place of origin: 
Not applicable
North-eastern Brazil and offshore islands. Rocky and coral reef habitats from shallow protected habitats to deep water. Readily identified in the wild by the blue colour (in natural light) anteriorly  and yellow posteriorly from about the anus. Has a small, but distinct pupil-sized black spot anteriorly on dorsal fin. Length usually to 12cm, rarely 16cm.

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.
