Sunburst anthias

How hard are these guys to take care of? What's their deal?

I didn't have much success with my first anthias, a squareback, he didnt' alst more than 4 days. BUT my current squareback is doing well. He didn't eat anything but frozen but now is coming around and eating flake and pellets. So far so good. i have also heard they are hard fish to keep but I'm hoping this second one will be the ticket.

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

Make sure it eats at least frozen food before you buy it. I have talked to several people about them and they say it is a hit or miss with getting them to eat anything but frozen.
