The Huchtiis Anthias is known as the Redcheek or Green Anthias, where its fins are outlined in an electric blue color that gives the fish a dramatic look. The male Huchtiis Anthias fishes are yellowish green in color with an orange stripe located just behind the eye, whereas the females are not as brightly colored as the males and share the same orange stripe behind the eye. It should be kept in a tank not less than 30 gallons, and males are best to be kept alone with several females in an aquarium of at least 60 gallons. In this Huchtiis Anthias species, if a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group will often morph to take its place. It should be fed with a varied diet of mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, frozen preparations and other meaty items for zooplankton feeders. Make sure to feed them in small quantities and several times a day for its continued good health. Although the Huchtiis Anthias is semi-aggressive, but it is considered a reef safe fish that makes a nice addition to the reef tank. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, pH of 8.1-8.4. The Huchtiis Anthias shows semi-pelagic lifestyle and therefore needs an aquarium with large space, so that it can swim freely. Due to its small mouth, we suggest you to provide it with small food or finely chopped sea food, especially color enhancing foods that can maintain their body color and make them vivid.

The males are yellowish green in color with an orange stripe located just behind the eye. Their fins are outlined in an electric blue color that gives the fish a very striking look. The females are not as brightly colored as the males and share the same orange stripe behind the eye. They are an active species, and help to draw out more reclusive fish within the aquarium. This anthias is also known as the Red-cheeked fairy basslet.In the aquarium, it should be fed a varied diet of mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, frozen preparations and other meaty items for zooplankton feeders. They prefer to be fed small quantities, several times daily.Keep a single male in a 50 gallon tank. Keep a pair or a group in at least 125 gallons.The family of Anthias are closely related to Seabasses, which include Groupers.These fish begin life as females and will change sex based on the requirement oftheir "harem". Anthias gather in huge schools around reefs where they swim withinthe school waiting for food. These schools can be seen in the hundreds and are madeup of small "harems" of a single dominant male, less dominant males, and manyfemales.
