The Sunburst Anthias, Serranocirrhitus latus also known as Fathead Anthiasis, is a beautiful colored reef compatible fish. It is very peaceful in nature and generally lives in either solitary or in a small haremic group in overhangs or caves. Sunburst Anthias have a maximum size of 5 inches and must be kept at a minimum tank size of 55 gallons at a temperature of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit at a maintained pH level between 8.1-8.4. It is commonly referred to as the Sunburst Anthias also known as Fathead Anthias, or Fathead Sunburst Anthias. The tank must have a consistent and high flow water condition with lots of live rocks, macro algae, subdued lightning or at a least shady region. The Sunburst Anthias have a carnivorous diet and hence feed on worms, crustaceans, larval fishes by wait and attack methods. They require a moderate care level and you must frequently feed them with small feedings of small or finely divided meaty food items. Sunburst Anthias are hermaphroditic in breeding. They are available in a color form of blue, red, orange and yellow. They don?t bother any of the reef inhabitants and that is why it is considered absolutely safe to add in a reef tank. They are best housed with peaceful tank mates such as gobies.

The Fathead Anthias, a.k.a Sunburst Anthias, is colored in a deep pink with scales of yellow on the upper portion of its body. They also have a distinct yellow spot on their gill cover and yellow markings around its eye. In the wild they float beneath ledges and are collected from deeper waters.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.
