Cooper’s Anthias (Pseudanthias cooperi is also known as the Redbar Anthias or Silverstreak Anthias They are fairly common in the hobby and quite an attractive Anthias. Males have a pinkish-red coloration with a short vertical red bar mid body, and a red tail. Females have more of a pinkish-orange body with red-tipped tail lobes.

This Anthias is best kept in a large size aquarium at a stocking ratio of a single male with eight or more females. They are shy creatures that require lots of hiding places in a rocky Aqua-scaped aquarium with lots of caves, crevices and ample amounts of live rock for grazing.

Anthias are a hermaphroditic species, being if the dominant male dies, the largest female of the group will usually change her sex to take his place.

These Anthias will do best when fed a varied diet of frozen mysis shrimp, brine shrimp and eventually the addition of high-quality flake foods offered in smaller amounts throughout the day. Using a sump type refugium filter that’s cultivating copepods and amphipods will enable a steady supply of nutritious live foods that they require to remain in top condition.
