The Blue Eye or Lyretail Anthias is the social butterfly of marine aquariums. This eye-catching fish is incredibly active and helps draw out shier fish that share the aquarium. The Blue Eye Anthias is also known as the Scalefin and the males have bright red coloration of varying hues while the female,Blue Eye Anthias tends to be more orange in coloration.

The Blue Eye Anthias does best when kept in a group and housed in a species-specific aquarium of at least 125 gallons in size. Male Blue Eye Anthias are best kept alone or with several females. Though the Blue Eye Anthias generally occupy the middle of the aquarium, it appreciates the availability of several hiding places.

Anthias species all share the trait of being hermaphroditic. If a dominant male perishes, the largest female of the group will often develop into a male to take his place.
