The blotchy anthias (Odontanthias borbonius) is a relative newcomer to the aquarium scene. It’s tenure in the trade has been limited to just a handful of years, as it is a very rare fish that often found in waters exceeding 500 feet. The species originates from the Indo-Pacific region, with individuals being reported as far north as Japan and as far west as Africa. The O. borbonis is an intensely beautiful fish that commands a triple digit price tag.
After starting the AquariumPix photoblog a couple of years ago and letting it sit idly by as we focused our attentions on its sister site The AquaNerd Blog, we’ve decided to give our photo heavy site a complete overhaul and start over. We’ve ditched the old theme in favor of one that’s not only simpler, but also highlights our image better. We’ve also cut out all of the old posts and images so that we could approach the site with a fresh perspective and all new images. We’re very exicited to get this reboot underway, and hope that you’ll follow us along for the ride.
