The Royal Gramma, Gramma loreto, is an excellent addition to reef aquariums of any size: either a single specimen for smaller or a number of them for a larger aquarium. It is not recommended to house more than one of these in an aquarium as they are very likely to attack one another. Preferring to dart in and out of Live Rock, this saltwater fish will make his presence known with its beautiful coloration. The bright purple head fading into yellow helps the Royal Gramma to be seen regardless of which crevice it pokes it head out of. As a carnivore, it readily accepts meaty meals including Brine Shrimp and frozen prepared foods. A great fish for aquarists of all experience levels.
