Oh, it's just that they are so pretty, and don't squarebacks get big? I also though Bartletts were one of the easiest.

Bartletts and lyretails I believe are the easiest. My squareback was about 4 inches when I had him. I also planned on a harem for my 125g but I think that would be too much even for my big tank.

Just giving my opinion.

I'd hate for anything bad to happen, so I'm always a bit conservative as well.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Bartlette's anthias don't take up alot of real estate so you wouldn't be anywhere near overstocked. If you only got 3 then get small females, but I think they'd have more security with a harem of at least 4 (you could get all small fems and 1 will eventually turn male).

I have a purple anthias that is not eating anything. Have tried almost everything, but he won't eat. Any ideas? All other fish are fat and happy.

I've yet to see a fish that doesn't accept live adult brine shrimp (they can be enriched using phytoplankton), which would be a good way to get them interested in eating.
