Red-belted Anthias


Red-belted anthias lives in waters of southern Japan and middle/West Pacific Ocean.  A male can grow up to be 10 cm in length.

A male has a red band on its body but a female does not.

They spawn from summer to fall and during this period, a male turns into nuptial color.  In Kinko Bay, you will see them swimming in colonies of several hundreds.
