Huchtii Anthias Huchtii Anthias is also known as the Redcheek or Green Anthias, and originates in the coral marine reefs that are found in Cebu as well as in the Solomon Islands. Males are yellowish green in hue with an orange stripe just behind the eyes. The fins of their mates are highlighted in the electric blue hue which provides the fish with a stunning appearance. Females aren’t so brightly colored as males, but they share the same orange stripe that runs behind the eyes. They are a lively species, and aid in attract shier fish to the aquarium.
It is believed that the Huchtii Anthias does best when kept in an aquarium with at least 125 gallons, in groups. The Anthias is found at the heart of the tank but is awed by the possibility of numerous hiding spots.

 

Anthias species are all characterized by the feature of being hermaphrodites. When a male who is dominant dies the biggest female in the group may change to replace it.

 

Once they have acclimatized to the fresh aquarium, the anthias perform optimally when given a variety of diet consisting of frozen mysis shrimp and brine shrimp that have been enriched and, over time, may consume high-quality flake food 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 live food that will keep the planktivore activity.
