Anthias (genus)

Anthias is a genus of colourful fishes in the subfamily Anthiinae. Most species are found at deep reefs in the tropical and subtropical Atlantic, often well below depths reachable to a scuba diver. A single species, A. noeli is found at deep reefs in the East Pacific.[1]

They are red, pink, orange or yellow, and the largest species reach 29 cm (11 in) in length.[1] They typically occur in groups that feed on zooplankton.

Species

In the past this genus included far more species, but these have now been moved to other genera, for example Callanthias, Odontanthias and Pseudanthias. Based on FishBase, the following species are currently included in Anthias:[1]
