Ventralis Anthias VentralisAnthias

Maximum Size: the Pseudanthias ventralis grows up to 2.5 inches.

Minimum Tank Size: The Ventralis Anthias prefers a tank of at least 80 gallons with plenty of places to hide & swim.

Diet: The Ventralis Anthias is a planktivore and likes to eat mysid shrimp, amphipods and other macroscopic life.

Level of Care: The Ventralis Anthias is a high maintenance fish.

Behavior: The Ventralis Anthias may act peacefully toward other fish.
Hardiness: This is a delicate fish

Water Conditions: Keep water quality high (SG 1.020 - 1.025, pH 8.1 - 8.4, Temp. 72 - 78 F).

Range: Western Pacific and South Pacific

General Notes: The Ventralis Anthias is one of the more demanding of the Anthias, and should be kept in as a solitary specimen, as it does not do well with others of it's own or with other Anthias. As with most Anthias kept in aquariums, the Sunburst Anthias will look their best when the tank has a lot of cliffs and overhangs, mimicking their natural environment. Offer frozen Mysis shrimp, Ocean Nutrition Prime Reef (Frozen), and other small meat based foods.
