Male Squareback Anthias

Male Squareback Anthias

Also known as a Mirror Basslet, Squarespot Anthias, Blotched Fairy Basslet, or Squarespot Fairy Basslet.

The Sexually Dimorphic Squareback Anthias can be found near the edges of drop offs in the wild. A somewhat finicky species, the Squareback Anthias may be coerced to eating in an aquarium through live or frozen brine shrimp. Also, the Squareback Anthias does best with low lighting as the colors may fade in bright lights. This fish also prefers fast currents within a fish tank. If keeping a school of these fish, the ratio should consist of one male to at least six females if possible.
