    I'm looking to set a royal gramma harem in my tank in my 120. For those of you that do not know, there are 2 species of fish tank are called the "royal gramma basslet" and are both found in separate regions of the Caribbean. While they are similar in appearance, they have very different...

    I planned to add a Royal Gramma Basslet and also like the dottybacks for color. I like the Orchid, purple, bicolor, and neon dottybacks. When I mentioned my plans, one LFS guy said to add the RG Basslet and a dottyback at the same time to prevent aggression. The next visit, another employee...

    Hi all, Ive read a variety of reviews. Anyone with experience with multiple basslets? I have a 220G that I am slowly stocking. I like the royal gramma and the chalk basslet. Can they go together in my tank or would it be better to just pick 1? theres just 5 chromis and 2 clowns and a cardinal in...

    Hey guys, I've had my royal gramma for about two months now and I recently purchased a flame angel. Once my flame angel came in the the tank the gramma has been hiding a lot. He'll eat like a champ but I recently noticed a white sheen taint on his side and he's breathing a bit heavy... I don't...

    Hey guys. So long story short here I have an ich problem in my tank so I put the fishies into a quarantine tank. They have been there for five weeks with no signs of ich for the past ten days after copper treatment. The tank has two clowns and a royal gramma in it. The two clowns look and...

    I have new 30 gallon (cycled) tank. I've had two clowns in the tank for about three weeks. Last week I added a Royal Gramma. Two days later I added a Neon Dottyback. So far the Gramma mostly hides in the rocks but comes out now and then. The Dottyback is out about half the time. On the two...

    So i'm in the process of setting up a 36 gallon reef tank. And I was wondering if it would be possible to house 3 different basslets together with no issues. The basslets I was thinking of getting are a Royal Gramma, Gold Assessor, and Macneills Assessor (yes I know the last two are a bit...

    My daughter works at a local pet store, and they let me use her discount, so i got a larger Royal Gramma for $10 ish, when it's normally $24 :dance: I have a six line wrasse that is slightly smaller than this gramma. So being concerned about the aggression the 6-line would probably display...

    Hi, I have a 50 gallon reef tank. I put in this royal gramma seven days ago and it has been eating and doing well. I have noticed this whitish spot on its one side. Could it be a ick?

    My tank is just a few months old but everything has been going well. No issue with water parameters..etc I currently have two tank bread small O. Clowns. They are great very active and eat anything I put in the tank. 11 days ago I added a royal gramma from my LFS. For the first 7 days he...

    I am very unhappy to say that my Royal Gramma has ICH. It has been present for about 8 days as far as being visable on the fish. She is eating well so far but appears to be getting worse. I have her in a 90 gallon that is FOWLR right now. There are tankmates that include two false perc. clowns...

    I found this guy as a hitch hiker. I'm so mad at myself for not following the adage, 'if in doubt, take him out'. I was siphoning sand and by luck he came up out of the sand. Before putting him back I researched on various forums and concluded he was safe, good as part of the clean up crew...

    I've had a small reef tank that I began stocking about 6 months ago. Everything seemed fine for a long while. The first fish I added were a clown and azure damsel. Later I added a goby, and even later, two blue-green chromis, and later yet, a royal gramma. I decided 6 small fish for my 30...

    So one of my first and also favorite fish is my royal Gramma. Got him when he was really little. He's now grown into quite a bruiser, prob about half grown. Pretty mild mannered but doesn't take crap from anyone. Seen him chase my flame angel which is twice his size. Anyway I was wondering if...

    Hello everyone, So here's the story. I've had my royal gramma for about 7 months. When I first got him, he went into hiding and would "yell" at my six line wrasse after about a month he was out and swimming all the time. A month ago, I added a yellow tang and he started hiding in a little...

    Anyone have any experience with a purple pseudochromis and a royal Gramma in the same tank? I saw some pseudos at the LFS today and I was wondering if they would kill each other. I know they're territorial and sort of bullies but if they were in a 55 gallon with plenty of rock work for territory...
