Amethyst Anthias also known as the Purple Queen Anthias, Pascal Anthias or Sailfin Anthias are found from Bali and the Ryukyu Islands to the Tuamoto Islands, north to southern Japan, south to Australia and New Caledonia.

Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items

The Amethyst Anthias is a medium-sized Pseudanthias species. It looks very similar to the more well known P. tuka. Females are most easily distinquisted, because tuka females are purple with yellow and pascalus females all purple. Males are variable so this makes determination a bit more difficult, but pascalus males don't posess a dorsal fin spot, which tuka males do. 

Like all anthias, it's an active fish, which is best kept in a group/school of at least 4-6 fishes. When buying a school you don't need to worry about sex ratios because these fish are hermaphroditic. This means the most dominant fish will automatically turn into the male when there is no other male around.

Keeping this fish in larger numbers will definetely make it shine. Do make sure they can eat multiple times a day though, because in nature they feed on zooplankton the entire day, and are not build for one meal a day!
