Lyretail Anthias Pseudanthias Squamipinnis Reef safe: Yes Temperament: Semi-aggressive Diet: Zooplankton, you can also find some specimens that will take to any prepared food. Mine eats Frozen Mysis and cyclop. Has not touched the pellet food yet. Care: Can be difficult but the Lyretail seem to be the easiest of the anthias species. Also Anthias tend to like a lower light setting to reduce stress. Male and Female: The male will be a purple to red color as the female will be a orange color. If you have a group of 3 females one will turn to male and change color pattern. If the male dies the next dominant female steps up to take the males place. Keep only 1 male per group. Size: Males get around 5 inches while the females stay a little smaller. Tank size: Recommended to 100+ gallons Origin: Indo-West Pacific Personal Observations: One of my greatest additions so far. Adds color and it is really nice to see them stick together. I have one male and 2 females and they are full of personality. Anthias are a difficult fish to keep but if you can find specimens that will readily take prepared foods you have a better chance of survival. Please post any pics of yours or your experience with them to share more information that I may have left out.
