I have them in my tank. IMO they adapt better than the other anthias. I have 2 females and one male.

They are best kept at least in groups and at least three. I have a 125 gallon reef.

I would not recommend one. They need to be in groups.

Anthias need to be kept in groups. They are easily stressed when kept alone and will not thrive in the long term. Please reconsider.
