The Bicolor Anthias form massive schools among the reefs. 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. The dorsal fin of the male is edged in purple, and the first ray is elongated.
These are one of the hardier of the Anthias and make a wonderful addition to the saltwater reef or fish only aquarium. The Bicolor Anthias does best when kept with its own species in an aquarium of at least 125 gallons, but is also a beautiful fish for the fish only, invertebrate or reef aquarium.
