Pygmy Basslets
Gramma - Yellow Cheek
Gramma linki
Place of origin: 
Mainly Caribbean Sea, ranging to the Bahamas, but often very deep and may have gone unnoticed in some adjacent areas. Occurs along steep walls and usually in the shade of caves or crevices. Usually at depths of 30m or more and in some areas not seen shallower than 60m. Body dark, bluish or purplish, scales with yellow centres and head mostly yellow with dark markings on lips and cheeks. Length usually to 75mm, rarely to 10cm.

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.
