The Maculosus Angelfish makes a great ‘first choice” for large angelfishes. It is also known as the Yellowbar Angelfish (or Yellow-band Angelfish), Map Angelfish, Blue Moon Angelfish or Map Angelfish. It is 2 inches in size and has several vertical white bars. It has a bright metallic blue body with white vertical bars. As the fish grows and matures, the bright vertical bars will disappear. When the fish reaches 3-4″ in length, a neon blue irregular pattern will begin to appear. The center vertical stripe of the fish will become a bright yellow and the tail will become transparent yellow. The fish will turn gorgeous blue when it reaches maximum size. It will also have a large vertical yellow bar in the middle. It is distinguished from the Asfur Anger’s bright yellow tail and dark purple body by its transparent caudal fin.

The Maculosus Angelfish can be hardy and grow to more than a foot in length. It should be kept in a 250-gallon tank with yellow tail. Only one specimen should be kept in each tank. This fish is not suitable for reef aquariums as it can nip at soft and stony corals (sedsile invertebrates), and clam mantles.

The Maculosus Angelfish, a Pomacanthidae member, is hermaphroditic and difficult to breed. It can also be indistinguishable from male and female.

Spirulina and marine algae are all part of the Maculosus angelfish’s diet.

Description

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.

 

Maculosus Angelfish Diet & Nutrition
The Maculosus angelfish, an omnivore that eats mainly sponges, is called the Maculosus. This angelfish should consume Spirulina and marine algae in its tank. It also needs to eat meaty items and high-quality angelfish dishes containing sponges.

 

Maculosus Anglefish Origin
These marine angelfish can be found in the Western Indian Ocean, particularly in the Red Sea and Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman near the Mediterranean.
