      Scientific Name: Pseudanthias olivaceus
      Max. size: 8.8 cm SL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine; depth range 1 - 34 m
      Distribution: Pacific Ocean: Cook Islands, Austral and Society islands (French Polynesia), Line Islands (Kiribati), and Tuamoto Archipelago.
      Morphology: Males have a dusky spot on pectoral fins, the pelvic fins have a dusky margin, are brightly colored with orange patches on the side of the body and blue margins on the tail lobes and dorsal fin. The caudal lobes of males also have filamentous extensions.
      Aquarium Care: This species is durable, and occasionally available. It should not be kept with small zooplanktivores in smaller tanks, as the Olive Anthias can become aggressive. In a very large tank, this species can be kept in groups. One male per tank. 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.
