Species group: Anthias
Other common names: Green Anthias; Red Cheek Anthias; Sea Goldie Anthias
Scientific name: Pseudanthias hutchi
Hutchi Anthias have a body that is predominantly yellow in color with a white belly. The fins have an electric blue outline which gives a striking appearance to the fish. The Hutchi Anthias has a forked caudal fin and a pronounced anal fin. The dorsal fin has a filament-like protrusion trailing from it. The dorsal, caudal, and anal fins have a dark orange tinge border.
Hutchi Anthias are considered to be very active fish and can be used to draw out comparitively shy fish in a tank. Ideally, one male is housed with several females. Being a hermaphroditic species, if the dominant male perishes, a female will morph to take its place.
This fish requires a tank of at least 50 gallons capacity.
