The Bartlett's Anthias does best when kept with its own kind in a species tank of at least 250 litres but also makes a beautiful addition to the peaceful fish-only marine aquarium as well as the mixed reef aquarium. The Bartlett's Anthias will predominantly occupy the middle of the aquarium water column but will venture freely into all regions of the aquarium injecting vibrant color where ever it swims.
The Bartlett's Anthias is also known as the Bartlett’s Fairy Bass. The males have a more intense coloration with a violet body and yellow running along the back through the upper caudal lobe. The females tend to be lavender in color with a yellow back and caudal fin.
