Anthias species are incredibly resilient, as they are able to quickly adapt to changes in their environment. As a result, they are one of the most commonly found fish in coral reefs. Furthermore, their hermaphroditic trait makes them well-suited to survive in their natural habitats. Additionally, Anthias species are able to quickly repopulate an area if their numbers are reduced or depleted. This makes them an important part of the marine ecosystem.
If you are new to keeping an aquarium, Anthias are an active and content fish that do well when fed a varied diet of frozen mysis shrimp, enriched frozen brine shrimp, and over time may eat high-quality flake foods offered in small quantities throughout the day. An attached refugium cultivating copepods and amphipods provides a steady supply of nutritious live food sure to keep your Anthias content.
