    Information on ID of these two Anthias is varying. Any thoughts on the visual differences. and perhaps behaviour. or if both have been kept together.

    Pseudanthias pleurotaenia (female)
    Pseudanthias squamipinnis

    Here is a link to the squamipinnis.

    http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2008-07/fish/index.php

    Note the one stripe under the jaw/cheek for the squamipinnis
    The Pleurotaenia has two stripes under the jaw/cheek.

    These two fish are commonly confused by LFS and advanced aquarists. What other ID clues and thoughts are out their.

    Anthias is not that small either. Compared to Ocealaris clowns they tend to be bigger. Would be nice to post the adult sizes here per species.
