This species, the Anthias Squamipinnis, is a beautiful fish that is best kept in a larger tank. It is important to note that a 10 gallon or larger aquarium is necessary to provide a suitable habitat, ideally with branching coral. Additionally, Anthias Squamipinnis mostly keep to themselves, but they may become aggressive towards their own kind if the tank is too small. For this reason, it is recommended that they be kept with other docile species. With the right setup, Anthias Squamipinnis can be a beautiful addition to any aquarium. Furthermore, they are relatively hardy and can thrive when given the proper care.

Clown gobies are a popular species of saltwater fish that can easily be bred in a home aquarium. With proper care and maintenance, these fish can live happily in captivity for many years. Caution should be taken when introducing clown gobies into an aquarium containing Acropora sp. or similar SPS corals, as the fish will often lay their eggs on the underside of the coral branches. This can lead to tissue recession in the area of the coral. Fortunately, if the conditions in the aquarium are suitable, the coral will be able to regenerate the tissue that has been lost. It is important to monitor the health of both the fish and the coral in order to ensure successful breeding and healthy growth. Additionally, it is essential to provide the clown gobies with adequate food sources and appropriate hiding places, such as caves or crevices, in order to ensure their well-being.

The Green Clown Goby should feed on a variety of food preparations that include brine shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp, table shrimp, and frozen food preparations for carnivores.
