The Barletts’ anthias is a tropical marine species found on coral reefs in the western Pacific Ocean. It is a brightly colored fish most commonly seen during the day swimming above areas of branching coral where it will seek shelter when threatened.
Like most anthias species, the Bartletts’ anthias forms large schools made up of numerous, small social harems. Each harem is usually composed of a dominant male, several less dominant males, numerous females and juveniles. The dominant male is continually defending the harem from challenges by other males..
