Also known as a Yellowband angelfish, Yellow-band angelfish, Map angelfish or Blue Moon angelfish.
The Maculosus Angel is a stunning addition to any aquarium. If you’ve always wanted a large angelfish in your aquarium, this big beauty is a great option. This saltwater aquarium fish is a true dazzler and very hardy.
Like many angelfish, the Maculosus Angel changes its coloring as it matures from a juvenile to an adult. Juveniles are a deep blue color slashed with white vertical bars. They also have a bright yellow tail. As the fish matures, the white stripes disappear, replaced by a bright yellow vertical bar across the body. This is why the Maculosus Angel is also known as a Yellowband angelfish. When this fish reaches its impressive full size, its body will turn a pretty shade of blue.
Due to its size, this saltwater aquarium fish needs a lot of room in the tank to swim. The Yellowband angelfish will feel more secure in its environment if you provide plenty of live rock and caves. These structures will give your fish places to hide and rest. This angelfish may not be ideal for reef aquariums, as it tends to nip at coral and clam mantels. You should also take care in choosing other saltwater aquarium fish to join your angel. Angelfish are territorial and solitary. They may startle easily if placed in a crowded environment. They also do best as the only angelfish in the tank.
This large and beautiful fish can be the centerpiece of your saltwater aquarium. Its bright colors and graceful swim make it a joy to watch and care for.
