Notes: The Evansi Anthias is also known as the Yellowtail Goldie or Evan's Anthias.
With a peaceful nature, this fish does well with other non-aggressive fish of the same variety. If keeping more than one Evansi, it is best to have one male with several females in a 125 gallon tank. If kept alone, a 75 gallon tank is sufficient.
Anthias species all share the trait of being hermaphroditic. If a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group will often morph to take its place.
The Evansi Anthias can be difficult to maintain and is not appropriate for the inexperienced aquarist.
