      Scientific Name: Hemanthias vivanus
      Max. size: 25.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: benthopelagic; marine; depth range 45 - 610 m
      Distribution: Western Atlantic: North Carolina and northern Gulf of Mexico to northern Brazil.
      Biology: Occurs in large, fast moving shoals. Both juveniles and females feed on zooplankton (especially copepods) near the seafloor. Males move away from the seafloor, but capture similar prey.
      Aquarium Care: This species should be kept in a deep water tank, with temperatures in the range 12.5-23ºC (55-74ºF). Can be kept in small to large groups, and they will form hierarchies based on size-related dominance (larger individuals chasing smaller). The Red Barbier is now available in the hobby (most going to Japan) because of the use of mixed gas to aid in deep-water fish collection. This practice usually means the fish will be more expensive to purchase.
