The Flavoguttatus Anthias, Pseudanthias flavoguttatus, is hermaphroditic meaning all are born females, and when needed the dominant female turns into male. Though they are one of the few Anthias species that does not display sexual dimorphism. They feature a pink and yellow speckled body color with a thick white band running along the spine and about six red saddle like spots. 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 peaceful and can be kept in a reef tank setting with plenty of live rock, but since they are one of the more sensitive genus of Anthias, they will require expert care. 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.

This fish is pretty but shy and difficult to feed and keep alive. It died after just a few days. It kept hiding and did not come out for feeding. Saltwater co took care of the problem and refunded the amount I'd paid
