      Biology: A deep water species, forming small aggregations with large coral heads at the base of deep slopes in current prone areas. Usually in depths of 40 m depth.
      Aquarium Care: This species is not common in the hobby, but sometimes can be found. The Hutomo's Anthias should be kept in a deep-water aquarium with dim lighting.
