General information regarding Spotbreast Angelfish
With a very flared tail, this Spotbreast Angelfish is one of the few angelfish to display striking sexual dimorphism. Females are yellow in the dorsal area and the ventrally area is light blue. The caudal fin is blue-marine highlighted by a dark blue-black edge at the top and bottom. Males are marked by a series of vertical red stripes that cover the entire body in pale colors. The male’s tail is forked and is bright blue and yellow. A large tank with plenty of hiding spots and live rock to graze on can provide a habitat where it can flourish. A distinct exception to the majority of angelfish that are common is the Blackspot Angelfish will make an excellent reef dweller and won’t nip at soft corals and stony ones (sessile invertebrates). It’s also more tranquil and can be kept as a pair or in schools. Fish from the Genus Genicanthus are the sole Zooplanktivores in the angelfish.
