      Aquarium Care: Provide plenty of hiding places, good water movement, and non-aggressive tankmates. This species can be kept in groups in a larger tank. Only one male per tank. The Yellowlined Anthias does best in a dimly lit deep water 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.
