Asfur Angel Fish also known as the Arabian or Crescent Angelfish is a shyer species of Angelfish found in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.
Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
The Asfur Angel Fish has a dark blue/purple body, black face, yellow tail, and a predominant yellow crescent bisecting the body vertically and a bright yellow tail. As with some other Pomacanthus, the coloration of the juvenile differs markedly from the adult. A shy fish that does best when not kept with other Asfurs Angel Fish due to territorial behavior, the addition of numerous hiding places and live rock for grazing will help with keping this species happy in the aquarium. The Asfur Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals and clam mantles, but may be kept with small polyped stony corals and somewhat noxious soft corals.
All Angelfish are hermaphroditic. The Asfur Angelfish is indistinguishable from male to female and very difficult to breed in an aquarium.
It is best to feed Asfur Angel Fish a diet of algae, meaty foods, and angelfish preparations containing spongiform products.
