The Randall’s Anthias goes through one of the most striking color changes of any anthias species as it transitions from male to female. Male Randall's Anthias' become striped in red and magenta while females will have a yellow nose. Here are some care tips specifically for female Randall's Anthias.

Tank size:

Female Randall's Anthias should be kept in a tank that is at least 55 gallons or larger. This will provide enough swimming space for the fish and allow them to establish a territory.

Water parameters:

The ideal water temperature for female Randall's Anthias is between 74 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit. The pH should be between 8.1 and 8.4, and the salinity should be between 1.023 and 1.025.


Female Randall's Anthias are carnivorous and should be fed a varied diet that includes meaty foods such as frozen or live brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and krill. They can also be fed high-quality pellet or flake foods that are specifically designed for carnivorous fish.


Female Randall's Anthias prefer dim lighting, so it's best to provide them with indirect light or use a low-wattage light.


Female Randall's Anthias are peaceful fish and can be kept with other peaceful fish species in a reef tank. However, they should not be kept with aggressive fish or fish that are much larger than them.

Social behavior:

Female Randall's Anthias are schooling fish and should be kept in groups of at least three to five individuals. This will help reduce stress and aggression in the fish.

Water quality:

It's important to maintain good water quality in the tank by performing regular water changes and monitoring the levels of ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. Female Randall's Anthias are sensitive to changes in water quality and can become stressed or sick if the water quality is not maintained properly.

By following these care tips, you can ensure that your female Randall's Anthias remains healthy and happy in your home aquarium.
