      Scientific Name: Pseudanthias fasciatus
      Common Names: One-stripe Anthias, Redstripe Anthias, Striped Anthias
      Max. size: 21.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; marine; depth range 20 - 150 m
      Distribution: Indo-West Pacific: southern Japan to the Great Barrier Reef.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 16-17; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7. Juveniles of this species lack the red lateral stripe.
      Biology: Found in or near caves and ledges of seaward reefs. Adults swim upside-down.
      Aquarium Care: Temperature 20-26ºC. This species should be provided a large cave or overhang in dim lighting. Suitable tankmates include cardinalfish, assessors, chromis, gobies, dart gobies, comets, and flasher wrasses. This species can be kept in small groups, but only one male per tank. Will not harm inverts. The One-stripe Anthias is prone to get decompression problems from collection in deeper water. Examine specimens for signs of problems (they should maintain their position in the water column). 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.
