Aquarium Conditioned-Blotched Borbonius Anthias, Odontanthias borbonius.

Size: ~1.5-2.5+ inches. This species reaches 4-6 inches with maturity.

We are excited to offer Blotched Anthias. These Anthias are very sought after with their sporadic availability in the trade. This deep-water species has beautiful blotched golden lemon color markings with a light pink body. This is a great species if you are looking for something unique and different. They do well singly or paired. This a peaceful Anthias species. They have lots of personality and are adorable with their big eyes. These are not as aggressive feeders as some other Anthias species making them compatible tank-mates with our larger species of captive bred seahorses including H. erectus. We are feeding them a variety of frozen Mysis shrimp, frozen Calanus, LRS frozen nano blend and a variety of other foods at our farm.

We recommend a 125 gallon or larger aquarium for this species, the deeper the better. We recommend these for an experienced keeper.

Our Aquarium Conditioned fish are quarantined and observed at our aquaculture facility before offered for sale. We prophylactically deworm all our fish as well as run an anti-parasitic treatment on all of our fish.  

We recommend housing this species singly, paired or in a group. They are peaceful fish and friendly to keep with our larger species of captive bred seahorses such as H. erectus.
