    Sponsors, I am looking for this anthia species. They come from Indo Pacific and Western Pacific, and is also known as a Blothcy Anthia.

    Hehehehe... Good one... Yes, well, they only start appearing at 300ft, but they are most abundant at at 600ft... (that is 182meters deep by the way...:eek:)

    The second one is not as deep, but interestingly enough, note the large eyes...

    Thy are rare the reason is that thy are deep and secretive so normaly thy are collected with cyanide and then needled there are also the Hawaiian type holanthias fuscipennis but almost 10 times the price but collected better normaly thy are also needled (pinned)
    I will sagest that you use antibiotic when you quarentine this type of anthia the just to help that a pinned fish will not get infections in it's wounds
