Sunburst Anthias

SKU: AO1541Categories: Saltwater Fish

The Fathead Sunburst Anthias, or Fathead Anthias, exhibits a stunning appearance with its predominant pink coloration, complemented by yellow-to-orange scale margins and facial markings. The blue-fringed pectoral and anal fins add to its visual appeal. To create an ideal habitat for the Fathead Sunburst Anthias, a deeper tank with ample surface area for water oxygenation is preferred. This fish thrives in an environment with low-to-moderate lighting and plenty of hiding places, making it a great addition to a peaceful community aquarium alongside other non-aggressive tankmates like gobies. If multiple Anthias are being kept, it’s best to introduce them all at once. Anthias species are hermaphroditic, meaning that the largest female in the group will often transform into a dominant male if the current one perishes. Feeding a varied diet is essential for the Fathead Sunburst Anthias, with frozen mysis shrimp, enriched frozen brine shrimp, and high-quality flake foods all recommended. A refugium containing copepods and amphipods is also an excellent way to provide a consistent supply of live food for this active planktivore.
