General information about Maculosus Angelfish
Pomacanthus maculosus, a marine angelfish, lives mainly in coral and rock areas. It can be found in shallow to moderate depths (40 feet), but more often in silty areas than in rich corals. Sometimes, it makes its way into aquarium trade. The Maculosus juvenile angelfish has a deep blue color with narrow, vertical, whitish-thin bars along their sides. As they grow, the fish loses their anal and dorsal fins that were rounded and becomes more pointed. The adult Maculosus angelfish’s Caudal fin has a yellowish-whitish color with many fine yellow dots. The margin is also white.
