Temperament: Peaceful

Reef Safe: Yes
Minimum Tank Size: 70 gallons
Max Size: 3 inches
The Ventralis Anthias, Pseudanthias ventralis, is hermaphroditic meaning all are born females, and when needed the dominant female turns into male. They also display sexual dimorphism with the male featuring a pink body with a bright yellow streak along the back that is also speckled blue and purple with blue highlights on the fins and eyes while the female displays the same pink body, the yellow streak along the back is solid with one red/orange line along the back and eyes. 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.

Good price, fast shipment of my Ventralis Anthias: Female.
