The Pseudoanthias pleurotaenia boasts beautiful colors and makes a great addition to any reef tank. It is considered one of the largest of the anthias family, and easily attains a size of 4-5 inches. The The female Pink Square Anthias should not be kept in a tank less than 45 gallons, and needs an acclimatization time period of 3+hours. It is moderate easy to care for and considered a great schooling fish. The female Pink Square Anthias is peaceful and gets along well with other community fishes. It shows sexual dimorphism in which the male female Pink Square Anthias is generally reddish pink with a bright pink square, and the female is a bright orange-yellow in color. The female Pink Square Anthias chiefly feeds on zooplankton and gets benefit from several small feedings throughout the day. The food includes Cyclop-eeze, Mysis shrimp, baby brine shrimp and similar items. If it is only a single female Pink Square Anthias fish, then 25 gallon will be suffice for it, and if it is a group then 125 gallon tank should be used. It requires plenty of space to swim and perch on, therefore lots of rockwork and hiding places is required in the reef aquarium so that it feels safe in the tank, and also can reward you by staying out in the open for most of the time. The female Pink Square Anthias requires strong water movement in your tank, and should never be housed with fish that are too aggressive. It is completely reef safe that does not bother any kind of corals present in the nano tank.

Great fish
I ordered 3 of these beautiful fish when they were on sale. One was doa, sadly, but the other 2 were in great shape. Both were eating frozen and pellets within hours of acclimation. They seem happy in their 20g quarantine tank. Hopefully they stay healthy in the display tank in a month. I highly recommend this fish, especially at prices.
