I'm looking to get the caribbean blue reef chromis, really really blue ones. I had an anthias but it passed in the tank disaster of this year. :-(

I don;t want any anthias though, it would have to be as spectacular as the one I had was. here is the one I had, and the picture just doesnt do it justice. It was a stunning fish...

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

I know, I am very sorry about what happened to your tank. I took one day and just sat down and read through the whole thread for about 4 hours, LOL. It was fun! The Anthias is absolutely beautiful!

That was probably, no, WAS, the most beautiful fish I'd ever seen to this day. I love my clowns like nobodies business and all my other fish are pretty awesome too, love my yellow tang, all the hard work i had to do to get a yellow tang and yet he doesn't compare in beauty to that darn anthias.

But my tank has recovered from that nightmare and has been stable for a couple months now so I think it's finally time to finish the stocking. Then just adding corals here and there. Oh happy day. Cant wait to see a tank full of fish swimming around!

I only had her for 3 days and didnt see her eat once. I anticipate that there might be issues with her diet. BUT I have lots of pods and other small creatures in that tank so I hope, if I find another one, that she will be ok until she can feel comfortable eating prepared food.

I think it's gotta be easier with the anthias as comapred to the trouble i had converting my scooter and mandarin over to prepared foods.

But like I said, the fish would have to be something special.

Special fish for special people. I'm sure one will find it's way to your tank. I think that your Anthias was beautiful. There are a few anthias I want but I don't know what I can have yet or even what will go with what, but they are absolutely beautiful.

Oh I already k\now whats going into this tank. a midas blenny, 5 blue reef chromis and if the right fish comes along, an anthias.

That will pretty much fill her up in my opinion.
