Tank Conditions[edit]

This Angelfish is a deepwater species that does best in a cooler water tank with a large amount of well established Live Rock ad subdued lighting.


This Angelfish is overall pale with a broad black bar bordered by a narrow pearly white band running across the upper side from the front of the eye to the posterior portion of the soft dorsal fin. A similar broad black band with pearly white border runs submarginal on the caudal and anal fins.
