      Scientific Name: Liopropoma carmabi
      Max. size: 6.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine; depth range 15 - 70 m
      Distribution: Western Atlantic = Florida Keys, USA and Bahamas to northern South America.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 6-7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-13. Head, body, and caudal fin alternately striped with yellow-orange and lavender, these stripes separated by red lines.
      Biology: Found in the recesses of coral reefs. Secretive
      Aquarium Care: Provide plenty of hiding places. This species does best when kept in dim lighting, and has been observed to be more active at night. Upon introduction, the Candy Basslet will hide, but once comfortable it will spend some time out in view. The Candy Basslet is not easily collected due to its secretive nature, and results in a pricey fish. One per tank.
