The Bimaculatus Anthias, Pseudanthias bimaculatus, is hermaphroditic meaning all are born females, and when needed the dominant female turns into male. They also display sexual dimorphism with the male displaying one or two dots on the top fin, a pink head that fades to a vivid red with irregular horizontal pink/purple stripes and a splash of purple on the top fin, while the female displays more of a solid pink body with yellow fins and tail. They can be kept as a mated pair, or in a small school of females. Avoid keeping two males in the same tank, as it can lead to extreme aggression.

They are pretty hardy and can be kept in a reef tank setting with plenty of live rock. Diet should include a variety of a steady supply of copepods, frozen mysis and vitamin enriched brine shrimp, as well as high quality flake foods 3-5 times daily.

The Bimaculatus Anthias: Female are great fish. They acclimated very well. They are always out and swimming around. Their color changes under my lighting. Fun to watch.
