Overview

The Red Striped Anthias, also known as the One-Stripe Anthias, makes a beautiful addition to the fish-only, invertebrate, or reef aquarium. Adults are adorned with a prominent red lateral stripe outlined by light pink bands.

The Red Striped Anthias does best when kept with its own species in a tank of at least 125 gallons. In their natural habitat, Red Striped Anthias inhabit cave entrances and ledges of seaward reefs. 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.
