    Pseudanthias privitera is a stunning medium sized, slender species of deepwater anthias known mostly from the Cook Islands. Sometimes when gorgeous reef fish like these delicate privitera anthias are shipped halfway aroudn the world to aquarium hubs, their subtle beauty doesn’t exactly show. However in these in-situ videos of Pseudanthias privitera*taken at 70 meters deep (230 feet) near Moorea shows how stunning the privitera anthias can be, especially in a small shoal. At this depth the Pseudanthias privitera is joined by familiar aquairum fish including watanabe angelfish, multicolor angelfish, helfrich’s firefish and the gorgeous earmuff wrasse, Halichoeres xanti. The video above is kind of slo-mo but the one after the break zooms to a really good money shot of Pseudanthias privitera.*

    is it just me or does anyone else notice that these goldies dont over and dart like all the other species?

    they seem to shoal more like mullet?
