    Last time we wrote about Todd Gardner’s success being the first to breed and rear a Liopropoma sp. Reef Basslet, the jury was still out on which species he actually had. *Eggs from both L. rubre, the Swissguard Basslet, and L. carmabi, the Candy Basslet, were being collected and worked with. *Well, we have video confirmation, shot by Christopher Paparo,*on the first species.

    Shot at 101 days old (they’re 112 days today), we see clear proof that*Liopropoma rubre, the Swissguard Basslet, has been undeniably reared by Garnder at the Long Island Aquarium. *Now we just wait to see if Todd and his friends release any tiny Candy Bass videos too, and there IS hope! *A few smaller fish have yet to reveal their full juvenile coloration.
