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.
