Carlson Anthias also known as the Orange Bar Anthias or Pale Bar Anthias are found from the Philippines south to Australia, east to Fiji.

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 Carlson Anthias is a small Pseudanthias species coming from the deeper reefs. This uncommon fish has a mix of all the anthias colours with most notable an orange vertical bar on his flank. It will lose colors if unhappy, but once acclimated is a beauty to behold!

Like most anthias, it's an active fish, shy in the beginning, 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!
