Place of origin: 
Western Pacific
Jewel Pygmy Basslet, Manonichthys splendens, is a species of marine ray-finned fish in the family Pseudochromidae, the dottybacks. It occurs in the Indo-West Pacific and occasionally makes its way into the aquarium trade. It grows to a size of 13 cm in length.

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.
