The anthias are all lyretails, 2 males, 8 females. I picked up all 10 of these towards the end of July thinking some would not make it but these guys are fat and happy so I have a few. They do cause me some feeding issues in that they always, always want food, they check out everything I feed (scaring off the my rabbits and cbb) but by far prefer frozen brine (fortified and not...they will also eat mysis but prefer the brine). I had read they should be fed about 6 times through out the day but this is just not practice for me, I do however start feeding them when I get home in the evening and continually feed for a few hrs (4-6 depending on how late I stay up and how attentive to them I am). As a result of all of this I probably tend to over feed so I skim heavily and monitor phosphate levels and back off on feeding if these creep up.
