My three bartletts were doing well, but were the only fish to die in a cucumber accident.

I have 7 Anthias. I bought 8 and one died within the first week. The others are doing well are a very nice addition to the tank. I feed my Anthias mini pellets.

I am using Ocean Nutrition pellets. I buy the small pellets. I buy both the Formula one and Formula two and mix them together. When I feed the fish I take only a pinch (maybe 25 or 30 pellets) and sprinkle them into the tank very slowly. I do this twice a day. The fish pick them all up before they hit the bottom. Anthia's will not pick them up off the sand, they only take their food while suspended in the water column.

The feeding of small pellets to Anthia's was a suggestion from Jack at J&L and it has worked very well for more than a year now.
