    the coral beauty was in for almost two months - strange thing he never seemed to setlle and always had a single "white spot" like mark on him somewhere - but he ate well and was very lively ... i did introduce a male anthia (in my other pics) which had spot the next day after i put him in - strangely by the evening he had nothing on - the dancing and boxer shrimp was servicing him - well he has also died along with the two female anthia's i added - Imarine will be helping me soon - worst week of my life :-(

    Sorry for your losses Takumi.

    The Anthias may not have died of whitespot but rather malnutrition.

    They have a very specific diet and feeding regime requirements. Imarine will fill you in, if you decide to get this beautiful fish again.
