Anthias need live rock to hide in and will appreciate high water flow. They are best kept with other peaceful fish and can be kept together in a group consisting of one male and a few females. They should be fed multiple times a day and will thrive on a diet of meaty frozen, live, pellet and high quality flake foods.
Anthias are hermaphrodites. They all hatch as females and then the most dominant female within a group becomes the male, and if the male dies, he is replaced.
