The Gold Assessor Basslet requires a large aquarium with plenty of rock caves for hiding. A minimum of 30 gallons is necessary for the housing of one individual, and the size should be increased if more than one is desired. It is important to note that only one male should be kept in a single tank, as these fish are known to be territorial and aggressive. Furthermore, they are hardy and resilient fish that can adapt to a wide range of water parameters. With proper care, they can be expected to thrive in a home aquarium.

The Gold Assessor Basslet is an obligate carnivore, and as such, requires a diet of meaty foods to thrive. These include finely chopped fresh or frozen marine fish, squid, mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, and frozen carnivore preparations. To ensure optimal health, it is important to feed the Gold Assessor Basslet at least twice a day. Additionally, regular water changes and maintenance of water parameters are critical for its well-being. Finally, providing a varied diet with a range of meaty foods is essential for optimal health.

When measuring for a purchase, always make sure to account for the finished product’s size. This includes the width and height of the finished product, as well as the margin around the outside.
