Goldie Resplendent Anthias Male

SKU: AO6920Categories: Saltwater Fish

The Resplendent Anthias, also known as the Tierra Anthias or Resplendent Goldie, displays striking colors that make it a popular choice for aquarium enthusiasts. This fish is primarily yellow, with red highlights on its anal and caudal fins. Female Resplendent Anthias have a predominantly orange body with a pink/purple hue, a yellow nose, dorsal fin, and tail fin. In contrast, males are predominantly orange with the same pink/purple hue, but their tails are almost clear, and their pectoral fins have deep pink edges. Resplendent Anthias tend to occupy the middle levels of the tank but also require plenty of caves, ledges, and other hiding places. While a 70-gallon tank is suitable for one fish, a 125-gallon tank or larger is required to keep a group of one male and several females. Like other Anthias species, the Resplendent Anthias is hermaphroditic. If a dominant male dies, the largest female in the group will often morph to take its place. Once acclimated to a new aquarium, the Resplendent Anthias thrives on a varied diet that includes frozen mysis shrimp, enriched frozen brine shrimp, and high-quality flake foods offered in small quantities throughout the day. A refugium attached to the tank that cultivates copepods and amphipods provides a steady supply of nutritious live food that will keep this active planktivore healthy and content. Like most Anthias, this one is also reef safe
