Vastly underappreciated in the home aquarium, this little fish from the tropical Atlantic is an absolute delight. Perfectly sized and with a peaceful disposition to tankmates, the ORA Chalk Bass will do well alone but prefer to be in groups, its helpful if they’re all introduced at the same time. In addition to its bright colors, this species is remarkably hardy and will do well in aquariums as small as 30 gallons as they only reach a max size of 3”. They’re not picky about their foods and will not bother corals. They prefer lots of rocky areas in which to hide.
