Yep, that makes sense about the high matobolism, I remember reading that you had to feed them 3-4 times a day in the book Marine Fishes. I want one badly, I need to get my 180g! I think I am going to get the fixture you were talking about with the moonlights. As for the sump, filter, protein skimmer, I am not sure about those yet, LOL.

Yours look great melosu, I really like the male with the hi-fin!
Does anyone know if different species of Anthias will get along together? I know I will probably do at least a trio.

I've been feeding about 3 times a day for now, hopefully he will be fine in the big tank getting fed once or twice a day. They also eat out of the water column so I hope he can avail himself of that food so I don't have to overfeed the 125!

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

That's cool, do they eat plankton?

Per Live Aquaria

The diet is consistent with other members of the Anthias group - zooplankton and floating filamentous algae. In the aquarium, the Lyretail Anthias should be fed a varied diet of mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, frozen preparations and other meaty items for zooplankton feeders. The Lyretail Anthias prefers to be fed small quantities, several times daily.

To be honest I havent tried it yet in the qt. I do keep one up most of the time in the 125g so maybe he will try some in there, that is if the tangs let him get near it, they LOVE their seaweed sheets!

since I've had the anthias for over 2 weeks I think I can safely say he is the dopiest fish I own. LOL he just has this dopey look to him and when he feeds he's a spaz. Still a beautiful fish! I saw a female squareback yesterday and I was very tempted to add her too but the tank is pretty much fully stocked. :-(

Haha, Tangs sure do love their seaweed! Glad the Anthias is doing well! It Is good you don't have the "just one more fish" syndrome, I think I may have a little bit of that , LOL

Luckily I have the 90g to look forward to in order to get my fish fix. lol

I have that problem with the 20g though, I keep adding more fish, I just say "one more" and then get it. I should learn my lesson you'd think. This last fish isnt even suited for a 20g so maybe that'll teach me LOL
