Assessor flavissimus -Yellow Assessor- ORA Tank Bred Specimen-  If you had to ask us what one of our favorite reef fishes is, the Yellow Assesor would be it! These gems are captive-bred by the specialists at ORA. In addition to being gorgeous, they are far more affordable and, in our opinoon, a better sustainable choice for the reefer than wild-caught specimens. Although many reefers seem to think that Assessors are Dottybacks, they are not a member of the Dottyback family. They are superficially similar to them in many ways. The Yellow Assesor is native to Australia and is a member of the Plesiopidae (Longfins) family that includes the Marine Betta (Comet). They are not nearly as aggressive or territorial as the Dottybacks, and feed on small zooplanktonic crustaceans.


They are fascinating fish that exhibit unusual behavior. In nature, as well as in the reef tank, they can often be found swimming upside down. This is an adaptation used in their habitat where they’re usually found in caves or under ledges. Creating a similar habitat in the aquarium will allow them to exhibit this unique swimming behavior.


The Yellow Assessor will not bother invertebrates in the reef aquarium and will accept most frozen and dry prepared foods. All in all, one of the coolest fishes you can keep in a reef system!


CARE LEVEL:  Easy


TEMPERAMENT: Very Peaceful


HUSBANDRY NOTES:  Feed with a variety of meaty foods, such as mysis, chopped scallop, and other commercial preparations. May be kept in small gorups in an aquarium with lots of rockwork and overhangs. They really do well in this type of setup.
