Scientifically speaking, the basslets are members of the family Grammatidae. Within the marine fish hobby world this category also includes members of the family Serranidae. These typically smaller fish pack a lot of options in a small package. Basslets can be found in a dazzling array of super bright colors, but they are often territorial and aggressive, so keeping more than one male is often ill advised.
