I'm so excited! A gorgeous 4" squareback anthias came home with me yesterday and went into the marine tank with the tomato clown I call George. He is sooo pretty. He's maybe the girliest fish I've ever seen - all pink and purple. Not usually the kind of thing I go for, but I've read that anthias are easy to care for and relatively tolerant (with marine fish, this is a big, big deal). Here's an idea of what he looks like.
He'd be the pinkish-orangish one. The other is a female.
I do love my tanks. Even the small freshwater in the bedroom, which makes filter noises all night. Every day I get up and hear a small splish as the freakishly shy pearl gourami I found hides from me. It's so soothing to have them in the house.
