Just picked up two Bartlet's Anthias. They are both male but i got two just in case one doesn't make it. I plan on getting rid of my Cromis and adding 3 female Bartlet's.

I have been trying to get Bartlet's Anthias for 6 months now and it took me driving to Atlanta to get one. Only have one LFS down here in Valdosta and every time they get Anthias in they die.

Anyway, here they are, not too bad looking. Hopefully they live.

Very beautiful, those are two Lyretail males actually not Bartletts. Ive got two females and plan to add a few more females as well as a male in the near future.

Hi Jason
The Lyretail Anthias looks great in your tank. I know the drive was far, but I hope the fish would live in your tank

Thank you Aaron! Your store is impressive and your prices are great! Hopefully you can get some female Lyretails in in November when i come back up there.

Tom's Blue Spot Jaw Fish is doing great also.

So you are planning another trip in November? Does that mean I need to find a second job between now and then? lol

Lovin' the new frags, everything perked right up within an hour or two. Was nice meeting you.

Great lookin' Anthias!

LOL, I'm glad everything is doing alright. I won't have much available in November, just more zoanthids, some ricordias, M. Digita, ect. I'm more interested in coming up for a couple female Lyretail Anthias and Olive Garden. I'll also be trading some SPS in Cummings Ga.

I do believe that one of the males will kill off the other. Just my opinion though, good luck.

I know a home for the other if he needs it:D

Ahh...beautiful. I have a trio myself and wouldn't trade them for anything. They are really showpieces and quite friendly. You'll love the way they sleep in the rockwork hiding themselves. Good luck with yours and let us know how they do. :)

Well I bought 2 males to get 1. Once They have been in there for a while I'll sell the other and get 3 females. I'll then be getting rid of the Cromis and just have Anthias.

I'll let you all know how they all do.
