The Blotched Anthias is a true treasure for both reef aquarists and anthias enthusiasts alike. This coveted deep water anthias has generated a near cult-like following due to its magnificent coloration and sporadic availability in the aquarium trade. A warm pink body color is beautifully accented with irregular-shaped markings of a rustic golden hue. The fins sport a lighter lemon-yellow coloration to provide an invigorating yet subtle contrast. This gorgeous combination of exciting colours appears as though pulled right from a tropical sunset! The anterior dorsal fin demonstrates distinct spines while the soft dorsal fin and tail terminate in graceful filaments for a rich visual display. The attraction to the Blotched Anthias is immediate thanks to these striking qualities.

The Blotched Anthias makes a highly-prized and colourful addition to a large, established reef aquarium (the deeper the better). Originating from deep waters, the Blotched Anthias prefers to occupy the lower regions of the aquarium. To best replicate a natural environment, aquascape liberally with live rock to create ample crevices and caves for the Blotched Anthias to seek refuge. However, be sure to maintain open areas and plenty of surface area for proper water oxygenation. An environment with low to moderate lighting conditions is ideal for the Blotched Anthias, but these fishes adapt well to more intense lighting utilized on modern reef aquariums.

Once acclimated to a new aquarium, Anthias do best when fed a varied diet of enriched frozen mysis shrimp, enriched frozen brine shrimp, and over time may eat high-quality flake foods offered in small quantities throughout the day. An attached refugium cultivating copepods and amphipods provides a steady supply of nutritious live food sure to keep this active planktivore content.
