Please Note: Due to variations within species, your item may not look identical to the image provided. Approximate size range may also vary between individual specimen.
To recreate habitat for the Red Belted Anthias, aquascape your aquarium liberally with live rock, creating a steep reef profile with numerous caves and other hiding places. Be sure to maintain open areas and plenty of surface area for proper water oxygenation. Members of the Anthias group all share the trait of being hermaphroditic. If a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group can morph into a fully functioning male 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.p>
