    I bought 2 antheas less than a week ago. And the one is swimming and doing well and also eating. The other one stays in a corner 2 thirds from the botom not eating and not swimming around. Any advice?

    The one is being bullied. Anthias do get territorial especially in small groups. Rather catch the bullied one and place him in a refugium or quarantine setup and see how he responds to food then.

    Okay will do that.. yes I have noticed my other fish nip and flash(if that is the right term.) Only the one.. the other one is always with the ''bulied'' one.

    Concern is my tank has a dsb and not much space.

    Maybe a friend or a fellow member could help house him in a spare tank to see how he does. Maybe the other alternative would be to sell him. Approach the LFS where you bought him, maybe take him back or swap him.
