The captive bred Royal Gramma, Gramma Loreto, boasts a dichromatic color pattern with its front half vivid purple and its rear half a bright orange or yellow. Like other basslets they should not be housed with other basslets to avoid aggression, but can be kept safely and peacefully in a reef tank with other tank mates. They are also very hardy, making them easy to acclimate and care for.
Corals and larger invertebrates like shrimp are safe from this Basslet, though they may go after smaller shrimp once they reach their max size. Diet should include a variety of live or frozen mysis shrimp and vitamin enriched brine shrimp 1-2 times daily.
