Yellow Anthias are members of the family Serranidae (basses, basslets, groupers) and make up the subfamily Anthiinae. Anthias are mostly small, thus are quite popular within the ornamental fish trade. They form complex social structures based on the number of males and females and also their position on the reef itself, and are mainly zooplankton feeders. They occur in all tropical oceans and seas of the world. The Bartlett's Anthias does best when kept with its own species in a tank of at least 70 gallons, but is also a beautiful fish for the fish only, invertebrate, or reef aquarium. The Anthias dwells in the middle of a tank but appreciates the availability of several hiding places.
Temperature: 72 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit
