The Lantern Bass is a fantastic choice of fish for a reef aquarium. They are not only peaceful and undemanding, but they add a unique and interesting element to the tank. In order to ensure the well-being of the fish, it is important to provide a 30-gallon tank with plenty of live rock for hiding. Multiple specimens of the Lantern Bass can be added as long as it is done at the same time. Additionally, they do not pick at corals or sessile invertebrates, making them an ideal choice for a reef aquarium. Furthermore, they should not be kept in an aquarium with smaller fish or shrimp, as they can be aggressive towards them.

The Lantern Bass is an incredibly hardy species of fish, making it a great choice for many aquariums. Its diet consists of chopped meaty items, vitamin-enriched brine, mysis shrimp and flake foods, all of which provide a balanced and nutritious meal. With proper care and nutrition, the Lantern Bass can live a long and healthy life in your aquarium. Additionally, its stunning appearance will add a unique beauty to any environment.

When purchasing a new water filter, it is important to consider the size of the unit. There are three approximate purchase sizes to consider: small, medium, and large.
