This is one of our favorite picks among the various species of anthias. These are true schooling fish. These should be kept in group of five at the least, as they tend to hide under rock and die when introduced in less than five for a tank. We recommend a group of eight or more for keeping them successfully. They also tend to display schooling behavior which is simply stunning to observe. schooling in combination with the bright red/orange coloration leaves any observer speechless.
