The Fathead Sunburst Anthias prefers to live at the bottom of the tank, so the deeper the better, but still maintain plenty of surface area for proper water oxygenation. An environment of low-to-moderate light with lots of hiding places is ideal. It is best housed with peaceful tankmates such as gobies. If keeping more than one, it is ideal to introduce all anthias at the same time.
Anthias species all share the trait of being hermaphroditic. If a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group will often morph to take its place.
Most Anthias fish species are relatively hardy, but require food often in order to thrive in the home aquarium. Due to the complex social structure of Anthias, it is advisable to keep one specimen per tank.
