The Ignitus Anthias, Pseudanthias ignitus, is hermaphroditic meaning all are born females, and when needed the dominant female turns into male. They also display sexual dimorphism though they have the same coloration of an orange body accented with yellows and reds along the fins and tail, though the male is much more vibrant than the female . 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 hardy and peaceful 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.
