    I have a male lyretail anthia I got about a month ago. When getting him, I had the intention of getting him 3-4 females to be with. Would it be ok to add the females one by one or would they need to be added all at once?

    A couple things here:
    First, I would add them all at the same time.
    Second, you need to make sure they are definitely all females. Hopefully one of them hasn't started the transition to male.

    I only have a male right now, no others. I'm wanting to get the females now.

    Understood but you need to make sure you get all females and that none of those females have started changing.
