      Scientific Name: Pseudanthias heemstrai
      Common Names: Orangehead Anthias, Heemstra's Anthias, Redhead Anthias
      Max. size: 13.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine; depth range 15 - 67 m
      Distribution: Western Indian Ocean: Red Sea and Gulf of Aqaba.
      Biology: Found in harems.
      Aquarium Care: This species is moderately hardy and should be housed with non-aggressive tankmates. The Orangehead Anthias can be kept singly or in groups (1 male with 8+ females). It won't harm inverts, and can live in either a deep water reef tank or shallow water tank. The Orangehead Anthias will acclimate better when kept in a dimly lit aquarium. It will readily accept captive foods. Anthias species all share the trait of being hermaphroditic. If a dominant male dies, the largest female of the social group will often morph to take its place.
