Serranus tortugarum

The Chalk Bass is a small, colorful reef fish that belongs to the Serranidae family. It is also known by other common names, such as the Chalk Basslet or Chalk Basslet Grouper. They have a bright and vivid coloration with a pale to light blue body and a prominent, dark spot on the dorsal fin. Some individuals may also display yellow or orange accents, particularly around the face and fins. These fish are native to the Western Atlantic Ocean, particularly in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. They are often found in shallow, coral-rich environments.

Chalk Bass prefer reef habitats with plenty of hiding spots, such as crevices and small caves. They are most commonly found in and around coral reefs and rocky outcroppings. In the wild, their diet consists of small crustaceans, zooplankton, and other tiny marine organisms. In captivity, they can be fed a varied diet of small, meaty foods like brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and finely chopped seafood.

Chalk Bass are known for their peaceful nature and are often kept in marine aquariums. They are generally compatible with other reef fish species, but it's important to provide them with ample hiding places in the aquarium, as they may become territorial if they feel threatened.
