I heard alot of good things about Bluezoo so I placed an order Thursday. I got to looking at my order last night and realized I messed up I had ordered 6 Lyretail Anthias all female and with no male would lead to serious fighting and possible some of them dying so I called them about 4:30 and in the process of packing and sending my order out they made changes and got me a male included with the order. So far I am 100% happy with their customer service and I am waiting now for FedEx to bring my fish. I will update when I get the fish in a few hours.

Just curious. Never heard call females would lead to serious fighting and deaths.

In the absence of a male the dominate female will turn into a male so they fight to see who is dominate not pretty trust me

Yea the dominant one changes, but I haven't heard of bad experiences.

I have had 2 females about the same size fight for days until one was beat up so bad she died before I could get her out......having a large male seems to keep their hostility in check

Maybe with two females... I don't know if that is necessarily true that females will fight without a male... at least from what I have heard.

welp I'm telling you from experience I have been keeping anthias for years they all want to be the dominate one and the only way to become dominate is by fighting. A few years ago I had a large female Carberryi Anthias turn into a male while there was already a male in the tank and no joke she/he killed the male and took over the group I think it was 15 females.
