Once acclimated to a new aquarium, anthias do best when fed a varied diet of frozen mysis shrimp, enriched frozen brine shrimp, and over time may eat high-quality flake foods offered in small quantities throughout the day. An attached refugium cultivating copepods and amphipods provides a steady supply of nutritious live food sure to keep this active planktivore content.
A bright and colorful marine fish, the Evansi Anthias is predominantly violet, the flanks are sprinkled with yellow dots, and an orange line runs laterally from nose to pectoral fin.
With a peaceful nature, this fish does well with other non-aggressive fish of the same variety. If keeping more than one Evansi, it is best to have one male with several females in a 125 gallon tank. If kept alone, a 75 gallon tank is sufficient.
Anthias species all share the trait of being hermaphroditic. If a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group will often morph to take its place.
