How many male and female anthias to add at the same time?

I am thinking of adding 6 dispar anthias into my tank but any idea how many male and female to add? As I heard only one male is allowed?

6 anthias is a lot of fish to add at one time to any system. I have heard 1 male to 2-4 females depending on the size of the system.

Please update the "my info" section of your profile so we know a bit more about your system and inhabitants. That way you will not have to describe it every time.


Tank: 90 Gal SW Reef in the making

See my info for setup and inhabitant details:

Not sure he has much choice if you want a school of fish but when was the last time you added fish. If it was last week, you might want to hold off.
*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,
