Pygmy Basslets
Swiss Guard - Collette's
Liopropoma collettei
Place of origin: 
Western Pacific
Western Pacific, Philippines, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, and Hawaiian Islands. Inhabits shallow protected reefs. Secretive and rarely seen in the wild. Identified by the 3 principal black to red stripes mid-laterally along the body reaching to caudal-fin base. Length to 85mm.

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.
