General information regarding Flameback Angelfish
The Flameback Angelfish has striking contrasts of orange-yellow and blue colors. Although the body is predominantly blue, there’s an extensive and vibrant orange-to-yellow stripe that runs starting from the head and running back of the dorsal fin. Its caudal fins are yellow and a bit transparent, which makes it stand out in comparison to other species of Brazilian Flameback Angelfish. At times, the fish might nip at SPS and other kinds of Polyp Corals within Reef aquariums.
