Description
The males have a more intense coloration with a violet body and yellow running along the back through the upper caudal lobe. The females tend to be lavender in color with a yellow back and caudal fin. Most of time we receive Bartletts Anthias, from the Marshall Islands, as juveniles, before the sex is determined. We feed our Anthias Prawn Roe, Mysis Shrimp, Brine Shrimp, ArtctiPods, and other finely chopped meaty foods. One male per 3-9 females is suggested to avoid aggression. The family of Anthias are closely related to Seabasses, which include Groupers. These fish begin life as females and will change sex based on the requirement of their "harem". Anthias gather in huge schools around reefs where they swim within the school waiting for food. These schools can be seen in the hundreds and are made up of small "harems" of a single dominant male, less dominant males, and many females.
