  • Description
  • The Ruby Anthias is a very rare and not often seen large anthias. Ruby Anthias have a mostly pinking red body with blue lines under their eyes. When they are juveniles, the Ruby Anthias have more of a yellow coloration.

    Ruby Anthias reach a maximum adult size of around 10 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 240 gallons. Ruby Anthias are semi-aggressive fish and might bother some smaller fish. They will not bother coral and most inverts, which makes them a decent addition to large reef tanks. Male Ruby Anthias will be aggressive towards other males, so it is best to keep a group of all females or one male with multiple female Ruby Anthias.

    Ruby Anthias tend to live at very deep depths of around 100 meters. For this reason, they tend to like tanks that have slightly lower water temperatures and they need live rock to take cover from intense lighting found in our reef tanks. Ruby Anthias are also very active fish and will be swimming all day, meaning they need lots of swimming room.

    Ruby Anthias are carnivores and require a diet that is rich in meaty foods. Foods like mysis and brine shrimp, small pieces of fresh seafood and high quality meaty frozen foods will keep your Ruby Anthias healthy and happy. Ruby Anthias do best when fed multiple small meals a day instead of one large meal.
