The Bloodspot Anthias, Pseudanthias luzonensis, is hermaphroditic meaning all are born females, and when needed the dominant female turns into male. They also display sexual dimorphism with both sexes displaying an orange-hued body with one dark red mark on its dorsal fin and a horizontal yellow line going across its body. The general color of the fish fades from red to yellow from the head to the back with the males displaying a color combination that is more vivid than the females. 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 quite 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.
