Sunburst Anthias

Anyone kept these guys for an established length of time? Are they worth a look for a new recent tank?

I have had mine for a little over a year. I would wait for your water chemistry to level out. I qt'd for 5 weeks and he became very friendly with me, he was not so much for the first 3 weeks (you should qt so you can get it to eat and watch for disease). I have read they are very very shy fish but mine is not at all.

You have to have some very friendly tank mates. ANything that will pick on it will stress it out and kill it. So if you have fish that are territorial, or just mean I would put one in your display. They also like little overhangs and caves
