Anthias?

Anthias?



I was in my LFS and i saw some anthias in there, and i have always loved them ever since i went diving in the GBR. And have always thought that i would love to keep some in my tank. And was told i could but i would need very good water conditions and and need to feed them at least twice a day. The feeding part of it is okay as i have my food set-up every other day in a 1 litre jug with ro water and then is dispensed in the tank 20 times a day, but do they need any speciel food? I was also told that they prefer and do bestin a shoal of 6 -8 but i would have thought this alone would have been above my tank capacity of a 100 gal. I was thinking of keeping them with 2 percula clowns and 5 grren chromis and maybe a shoal of 3 of these guys?

But obviously not for a long while.

All help appreciated.
Andrew

Most anthias will do best singly or in a large group, smaller groups lead to problems. I had 3 in a 150 and one was picked on constantly, he never died, but was not part of the group.
