If you have a trigger already residing in the tank...no. If you have a large grouper or lion with a mouth big enough for the anthias to fit in...no. If you have a tank less than 75 gallons, then the anthias will most likely jump out regardless of what type of fish you have unless you have a secured top. They do OK with some puffers, smaller lions, even eels that can't swallow them. However, they are very nervous fish, so a small tank with any of these animals wouldn't be a good idea.
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
