The Dispar Anthias is commonly referred to as the Madder Seaperch, or Redfin. The Dispar Anthias feels the utmost comfort if keep in a tank not less than 70 gallons aquarium, with one male and multiple females. It is best to keep the Dispar Anthias in a 50 gallons tank if you are keeping it singly. The Dispar Anthias is hermaphrodite and breeding is quite difficult in captivity. If a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group will often morph to take its place. Males have a bright red dorsal fin and lack any red stripes on their tail. The female may display a yellowish-orange on the top and pale lavender to white on the underside. The Dispar Anthias is a peaceful species, and should not be housed with predatory fishes. . In captivity, the Dispar Anthias can sometimes be reluctant to feed, but can be enticed with amphipods, copepods, rotifers, and brine shrimp as well as foods such as prepared zooplankton, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, chopped mysis shrimp, and other frozen meaty foods for marine fish. The Dispar Anthias is a very active species and is necessary to maintain the aquarium with proper mechanical and biological filtration. The Dispar Anthias thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78° and pH of 8.1-8.4.
Bought 5 of these for my 125 gallon display tank and added them with a large purple tang, Blue Hippo Tang, coral beauty, six line wrasse, pink and blue spot goby, and 3 other different Anthias. They all stuck together and now in the am all the anthias are in one corner all together. Healthy live stock and eating from day 1.

We received our Dispar Anthias FedEx & she or he : ) arrived healthy & beautiful. With proper acclimation she is doing wonderful! Her neighborhood contains 2 clown fish, 1 other Anthias, a Blenny & a Sexy Red Shrimp. All are getting along terrific! My only advice is if your FedEx arrives after 12 noon is to pay the addition $5 for the upgrade that it arrives by 10:30 AM. We live in FL. We also recommend to remind "Saltwater" to put cold pack in box so fish do not fry.

one of my favorite fish! So much personality and the peach coloring is always an eye catcher! This fish has become best friends with one of my shrimp and it lets the shrimp clean it! Very happy with my purchase
