Carberryi Threadfin Anthias (Nemanthias carberryi)
The Carberryi Anthias, otherwise known as the Threadfin Anthias, are known for their vibrant coloring. Their heads and bellies are purple, while their dorsal and caudal regions are a bright yellow.
It is best to house these fish in a 70 gallon tank or larger with plenty of hiding spaces. These fish do well in species specific tanks and are very active, drawing out shier fish that share the aquarium with them. Anthias are hermaphroditic. If the dominant male in the aquarium perishes, the largest female of the group will change genders to take its role.
The diet of the Carberryi Anthias should include: frozen mysis shrimp, frozen brine shrimp, flake foods, and live food from a refugium which cultivates copepods and amphipods.
