Painted Anthias also known as the Pictilis Anthias or Painted Goldie are found from New Caledonia, Lord Howe Island and the southern Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

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 Painted Anthias is pinkish-blue, with a large blue oval on the caudal fin, and bright orange-red colouration on the rear 1/3 of the body.

One of the larger Anthias species, Painted Anthias do well with only a single male in a tank with a small group of females of the same species. Painted Anthias prefer a tank with multiple hiding places and caves, and initially prefers lower lighting conditions as they are found in moderately deep water. 

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.

Once acclimated to a new aquarium, anthias do best when fed a varied diet of frozen mysis shrimp, enriched frozen brine shrimp, and over time may eat high-quality flake foods offered in small quantities throughout the day. An attached refugium cultivating copepods and amphipods provides a steady supply of nutritious live food sure to keep this active planktivore content.
