The Tobacco Bass is much like the Chalk Bass in shape. It has an orange body and white to dark brown splotches on the top of its body.


It is very hardy and a great choice for most tanks including reef tanks, however it will get larger than most basslets and can intimidate smaller fish. More than one can be kept in larger tanks.  It is a very aggressive eater and may attack small invertebrates and other smaller fish.


They will eat a variety of small meaty foods.  Try adding vitamin-enriched food once the fish is established like Ocean Nutrition Formula One Small Pellets.
