General information on Resplendent Antthias
The Resplendent Anthias, which is among the most popular color variants is mostly yellow with red accents on the caudal and anal fins. The female’s body is mostly orange, with a pink/purple hue, and an orange nose as well as a dorsal and tail fin. Males are predominantly orange and have the same pink/purple hue, however, they have a transparent tail and strong edged pink pectoral fins. They are incredibly colorful. Anthias tend to be in the middle of the tank, but they also require lots of caves and ledges, and other hiding spots. A medium-sized tank could suffice for one anthias, but for an entire group consisting of a male and females, a bigger tank is required. Anthias species share the characteristic of being hermaphroditic. When a male who is dominant dies the most dominant female in the group is likely to change to replace it.
