Overview

A bright and colorful marine fish, the Evansi Anthias is also known as the Yellowtail Goldie or Evan's Anthias. It is predominantly violet, the flanks are sprinkled with yellow dots, and an orange line runs laterally from nose to pectoral fin.

With a peaceful nature, this fish does well with other non-aggressive fish of the same variety. If keeping more than one Evansi, it is best to have one male with several females in a 125 gallon tank. If kept alone, a 75 gallon tank is sufficient.

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.

The Evansi Anthias can be difficult to maintain and is not appropriate for the inexperienced aquarist.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1-1/4" to 2"; Medium: 2" to 3"; Large: 3" to 4"

Customer Testimonials

Denise McL South China , ME
Her Brilliant Colors are Breathtaking. Even prettier than the Flasher Wrasse. It is just as pictured. The fish is extremely shy though. It may take a few days to come out of hiding. The fish would be grateful to have lots of places to hide until she gets use to your peaceful (need to be) tank mates.
