I placed an order for 6 Bimaculatus Anthias from TSM yesterday and would like advice from people who have successfully kept them. First time with anthias, but I’ve been reading a lot about them for the past few months.What have you all been feeding yours? Adding them to my 210 gal display. I have a few tangs in the tank, a foxface, an orchid dottyback, and a maroon clown. All of my current fish are pretty young. Do you have any introduction or acclimation advice specific to Bimacs? Thanks in advance.

Assume they are quarantined? Pseudoanthias carry uronema .... which you do not want. Bimacs are among the easier feeders. Mine only took mysis/brine/LRS initially, but eventually took pellets.

Yes, quarantined. Thanks for the advice. Planning on frozen mysis, and flake/pellet. I feed my other fish nori, frozen mysis, some pellets, and an algae wafer or two daily already. Sounds like the consensus from other threads for anthias in general is maybe just add in the LRS?
