Yellowfin Angelfish



The Yellowfin Angelfish is also known as the Moonbeam Angelfish. This Yellowfin Angelfish sports showy yellow pectoral fins that stand out against its dark brown body with metallic navy blue vertical bars. Like its name suggests the yellow pectoral fins look like moonlights reflected in the dark, dark sky. The striking coloration is amplified when it is observed as the Yellowfin Angelfish swims. A 70-gallon tank with plenty of hiding areas and live rock to graze will create a pleasant habitat. It is recommended that the Yellowfin Angelfish should not be kept in a tank with other smaller Angelfish or fish that look similar to it. It is recommended to be cautious when you are introducing a Yellowfin Angelfish to a reef aquarium as it has a tendency to nibble at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates). The Yellowfin Angelfish is hermaphroditic, extremely difficult to reproduce in an aquarium, and has no discernible differences in color between females and males. Diet of Yellowfin Angelfish should include Spirulina and marine algae, premium angelfish dishes, mysis or frozen shrimp, as well as other fleshy foods.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
