I didn't think it was a Bartlett's because look at the amount of yellow on the back compared to the bartlett's in this photo.

Saw something similar in the LFS, it was marked as a Kenyan Pink Anthias, not sure how accurate it is though.

I think what you should do is search on Google images for someof these names mentioned.

Current name for the Indo-pac species in Pseudanthias (Anthias is an Atlantic genus).

Possibilities also include:

P. tuka
P. smithvanizi

and all the sensible suggestions above. Hard so see the important detail from your pic, but you can link pics back to what you can see on your fish...

Evansi Anthias

The anthias is without a doubt a Evansi .

see below link

I used to have 5 of them in my old system you can tell by the yellow stripe from the head to the tail as well as the red stripe across the eye.

Ah - but if you compare your pic to the one above, you will see that the amount of yellow on the caudal peduncle is different and seems to be important in seperating evansi from some of the other similar species! don't have all my things in front of me though...
