Anthias species all share the trait of being hermaphroditic. If a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group will often morph to take its place. Males colouration tends to be more vivid than females. Additionally the females appear to be smaller and have a more distinct separation between yellow and pink.

Tank compatibility[edit]

Reef compatible. Do best when kept with other peaceful fish.


Omnivorous. Offer a variety of foods. If necessary start them with live, but more likely they will accept frozen food shortly after introduction and can be trained onto flake and pellet fairly easily.

Feeding regime[edit]

Feed 2-3 times daily.


Only shy in presence of more aggressive fish, otherwise active reef fish that appreciate being kept in groups.
