Intriguing pink bars stretch across the body horizontally and make this fish among the prettiest of Anthias. Females of this species are pink, with yellow dorsal, anterior and caudal fins. The unique Anthias are stunning fish to be used in the only fish invertebrate aquariums, or reef aquariums.
It is believed that the Bimaculatus Anthias does best when kept in the same species in a tank that is at minimum one hundred and fifty-five gallon. A marine species the Anthias is found within tanks however, it appreciates having various hiding places.

 

Anthias species are all hermaphrodites. If the dominant male dies the biggest female in the group is likely to change to replace it.

 

After settling into a newly installed aquarium Anthias are best provided with a diverse diet consisting of mysis shrimp frozen, enhanced brine shrimp frozen in brine and eventually, they could eat quality flake food that are available in small amounts throughout the daytime. A refugium that is attached to the tank and cultivates amphipods and copepods will provide an ongoing supply of healthy fresh food that is sure to maintain the active planktivore levels.
