The Redbelted Anthias is one of the hardiest, most readily available saltwater fish. It can be known under many names such as Red-belted Anthias, Red-girdled Anthias, Redband Anthias, and Tricolor Anthias. It needs intermediate care and thus making a good choice for an experienced aquarist. The Redbelted Anthias shows semi-pelagic lifestyle and therefore need an aquarium with larger space, so that they can swim freely. The Redbelted Anthias are sensitive when introduced in an aquarium that is why we suggest you to keep it away from aggressive fishes while they are acclimatizing. If you are willing to keep a group, it is best to introduce all Redbelted Anthias at the same time. Once they are acclimatized, other kind of fishes can then be introduced, aggressive ones too. Although it is also considered semi-aggressive, but is reef safe and usually is tolerant of ornamental shrimp or other invertebrates. The Redbelted Anthias prefers to live in an environment with lots of hiding places and live rocks, rapid current and open water. A couple of large overhangs are also suggested to keep so that they can rest over it. The Redbelted Anthias do not prefer a brightly lit aquarium, and can flourish in a temperature range of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit. Due to their small mouth, we suggest you to provide them with small food that includes Mysid shrimps, finely chopped sea food, especially color enhancing foods that can maintain their body color and make them vivid all through. They are hermaphrodites in nature and are born females, and only develop as males if there is a shortage of males. If you want to keep a group, it should consist of one male and six or more females. The males of this species are yellow posteriorly, have an orange head and a broad red bar on their side, whereas the females are light red with yellow marks on the scales. With its beautiful vivid color, it makes a captivating addition to any reef tank.

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 of their "harem". Anthias gather in huge schools around reefs where they swim within the school waiting for food. These schools can be seen in the hundreds and are made up of small "harems" of a single dominant male, less dominant males, and many females.
