Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]
- An aggressive fish towards other Angelfish and similar fish, keep one per tank. Do not keep with shy, smaller fish. Not reef safe.
Diet[edit | edit source]
- Will accept most meaty foods such as shrimp as well as blanched vegetables and spirulina.
Feeding regime[edit | edit source]
- Feed once or twice a day.
Environment specifics[edit | edit source]
- It is a very territorial fish, and should not be kept with other species of Angelfish in a small tank. However, they can be kept together in a tank large enough.
Behaviour[edit | edit source]
- Mixes with suitable tankmates.
Identification[edit | edit source]
- A yellow-orange angelfish with green-grey overtones. Fins have blue outlining.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- It was through a program to breed this uncommon angelfish in captivity to increase availability, that the Blue-Streak Cleaner Wrasse came to accidentally be bred. The cleaner wrasses were employed to keep the angelfish parasite free, and spawned with the angelfish; the fry were indiscriminately collected, so the wrasses were raised with the angelfish.
