Anthias ???

I've been asking and asking for help about buying my last fish and I was thinking about getting some sort of Anthias....

Does anyone have any experience or advice for me?

Anthias do better in groups of at least 3...5 is better. They also need lots of swimming room. I wouldn't get just one or two. JMHO.

never had a prob with mine ! until the tank over heated then he couldnt hang lol

the six line and him shouldnt look twice at each other ! dont pay alot for one ! i got mine for $30 but have seen them as high as $70
