The Bicolor Anthias is also commonly referred as the Bicolor Anthias, Fancy Bass Anthias. It grows up to 5 inches in the wild and should be kept in a tank not less than 50 gallons. Since the Bicolor Anthias is semi-aggressive, it is imperative to keep it with semi-aggressive tank mates, and not with peaceful tank mates. It does not bother any invertebrates or corals and therefore the Bicolor Anthias is considered a reef safe species. It is a carnivorous fish that mainly feeds on mysid shrimp and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp that helps in maintaining its color. It is best to feed the Bicolor Anthias with live foods to make its immune system strong. The Bicolor Anthias should be fed at least three times a day for its continued good health. The Bicolor Anthias requires an aquarium with lots of ledges and rockwork to relax under. Also, provide it with ample space to swim, and clean, well oxygenated water. The Bicolor Anthias can be kept ideally in small groups of one male with 5+ females. It starts its life as a female and when required, a female can be changed to male. Male Bicolor Anthias are much more colorful and often have filamentous streamers which it uses for its mating dance and to deter other males. Anthias species all share the trait of being hermaphroditic. If a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group will often morph to take its place. The Bicolor Anthias thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4.
