The Purple Queen Anthais males are brilliant purple with a dark purple spot on the base of the dorsal fin. Females have a yellow stripe down the back and yellow bands on the upper and lower caudal lobes.

The Purple Queen Anthais does best when kept in a group or a male Purple Queen Anthais are best kept alone or with several females. Though the Lyretail Anthias generally occupy the middle of the aquarium, it appreciates the availability of several hiding places.

Anthias species all share the trait of being hermaphroditic. If a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group will often develop into a male to take his 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.
