    Gotta get a good pix of mine. I've got one survivor out of 5 that were initially placed a long time ago. That one is relatively aggressive in feeding (mysis etc...). Hangs out in the open, BUT only in one spot of the tank that is very close to rocks that it can dive into if spooked. When I had more, they did not really hang out in groups like other anthii. while they can get big, mine really hasn't significantly grown in like a year.

          Wow. Great shots of a stunning animal.

          Do they eat zooplankton like other anthias species?

            Sunburst looks nice, especially the gold flakes.
