The Sunburst Anthias, Serranocirrhitus latus, also known as the Fathead Anthias or the Hawkfish Anthias exhibits a beautiful blend of purple, pink, and yellow throughout its body, with attractive bright yellow lines around the face of the Sunburst Anthias. Like many Anthias species, the Sunburst Anthias is hermaphroditic. They are best kept in groups of one male and several females. If the dominant male dies, the next largest female will often assume leadership of the group. The Sunburst Anthias can grow to a maximum of 5 inches so they are best kept in tanks of at least 70 gallons id kept individually, and no less than 130 gallons if kept in a group, with plenty of live rockwork. The Sunburst Anthias takes a carnivorous diet consisting of a varied diet including frozen mysis shrimp, enriched frozen brine shrimp, copepods, amphipods and a steady supply of nutritious live food sure to keep this active planktivore content. They are also best kept with other peaceful species, like Clownfish, Chromis, Cardinals and Gobies. They will thrive in temperatures of 72-78° F and a pH of 8.1-8.4.
This is in my opinion the most beautiful and hardy anthias available. It is hot pink and orange. They ship very well, very rarely a DOA with these. Saltwaterfish.com had the lowest price for this fish over anywhere else I have seen. It is super healthy and eats frozen Mysis and brine and the pods that live in my rocks. I HIGHLY recommend this fish, keep singly or in a group of 3 or more depending of size of your tank!
