Bartlett’s Anthias or Bartlett’s Fairy Bass
The Bartlett Anthia, is also known as Bartlett’s Anthias, or Bartlett’s Fairy Bass. The males have a more intense coloration with a violet body and yellow running along the back through the upper caudal lobe. The females tend to be lavender in color with a yellow back and caudal fin. 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.
Bartlett’s Anthias or Bartlett’s Fairy Bass does best when kept with its own species in a tank of at least 70 gallons, but is also a beautiful fish for the fish only, invertebrate, or reef aquarium. Bartlett’s Anthias or Bartlett’s Fairy Bass dwells in the middle of a tank but appreciates the availability of several hiding places.
