Product Overview

Pseudanthias squampinnis


Males are best kept alone with several females, or singly in a 25 gallon or larger tank. A marine species, the Anthias dwells in the middle of a tank, but appreciates the availability of several hiding places. 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. The diet is consistent with other members of the Anthias group - zooplankton and floating filamentous algae. In the aquarium, it should be fed a varied diet of mysid shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, frozen preparations, and other meaty items for zooplankton feeders, several times daily.

    Anthias aren't exactly easy starting off. But these group from nyaquatic were interested in food within hours of adding to quarentine. I kept a male in the QT specifically for that reason, so they react when he reacts. So far it's been a week and they are doing better I believe eating away at everything. Another month or so doing this before adding to my main display.
