I like those Anthias. At point Id like to get one
My new tank will have one.
They even have a few captive bred mandarins left. https://biotaaquariums.com/ocean-oddities-store/
I've been through 2 of them over the years. Locally bought, neither one ever made it out of quarantine. Expensive lesson. A captive bred one might be the answer, these fish come from deep waters, if they are not acclimated correct when collected from the divers, they usually have bladder issues. ( which is what both of mine had) like all new fish, make sure to try and purchase a healthy one.
I'll buy one that's doing well in a hobbyists tank when I'm ready.
Borbs? They look cute when small and young. After they grow, just not as nice imo.
I'll buy a really small one that's doing well in a hobbyists tank when I'm ready....
