Ignitus Anthias (Pseudanthias ignitus) is also known as the Flame Anthias. Both males and females are vibrant shades of fiery reds, bold oranges and brilliant yellows in coloration with a red dorsal fin and a small red spot at the base of the pectoral fins. Males have a very bright red dorsal fin compared to the female which has a bright red edging on the dorsal fin.

This Anthias is best kept in a large size aquarium at a stocking ratio of a single male with six 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.
