The Gem of the Reef, the Lyretail Anthias is an absolute gorgeous fish. The bright red male and bright orange female both draw a ton of attention especially with the blue/purple eye. They are super active and bring out the shier fish in the tank. A tank will flourish if you have a large group of these together. A small school with only one male should be kept in a 125 gallon tank or larger with plenty of live rock, places to hid from the light in your tank and plenty of open space for swimming because they are very active fish. They usually stick around the middle of the tank but like to dart off and hide behind rocks. They can be kept in a reef or fish only tank with other peaceful fish. They should be fed 2-3 times a day with a variety of food including mysis or brine shrimp, flake food, and they will eat copepods and amphipods in your tank.
