The Indigo Hamlet is a member of the Serranidae family of Sea Bass or mini Grouper. They are found living on coral reefs throughout the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, Bahamas and Florida Keys. Indigo Hamlets generally grow to about 5 or 6 inches in length, which makes them large enough to prey on small crabs, shrimp and fish. However, they will not generally bother fish larger than 2 inches in length and are considered only semi-aggressive towards their tank mates.
Indigo Hamlets do well in the aquarium environment and can be housed in a variety of setups including both Coral Reef and FOWLR aquariums. Only the smallest tank mates (less than 2 inches in length) are at risk of being seen as prey. Well fed Hamlets should leave the majority of cleaning crew invertebrate species alone, but they may predate on some small shrimp and crab species.
Hamlets are somewhat unique in that they possess both male and female reproductive organs.
Indigo Hamlets do well in the home aquarium if provided some basic aquarium and water parameters. They should be housed in an aquarium that is close to 70 gallons or larger in order to provide them with enough swimming room and with enough water volume to accommodate the bio-load they produce.
