overview
The Stocky Anthias makes a beautiful addition to the fish-only, invertebrate, or reef aquarium. As its name suggests, this Anthias is slightly broader and shorter in morphology. Males are adorned with an orange back, yellow lines, and a cream-colored underside.

The Stocky Anthias does best when kept with its own species in a tank of at least 125 gallons. In their natural habitat, Anthias inhabit well-protected reefs of lagoons and bays. In the home aquarium, Anthias typically dwells in the middle of a tank but appreciates the availability of several hiding places.

Anthias species all share the trait of being hermaphroditic. If a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group will often morph to take its place.

Once acclimated to a new aquarium, Anthias do best 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 this active planktivore content.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/2" to 2-1/4" Medium: 2-1/4" to 4" Large: 4" to 6"
