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 Black Spot Angel Fish is one of the few angelfish to exhibit dramatic sexual dimorphism. The female is yellow dorsally, and light blue ventrally and caudal fin is marine-blue highlighted by a dark, blue-black edging on the top and bottom. The male is marked with a series of vertical red stripes covering the entire pale colored body. The tail of the male is forked and is yellow with blue edges.
An aquarium with lots of hiding places and live rock for grazing will offer an environment in which to thrive. Black Spot Angel Fish will make a good reef dweller, and will not nip at stony and soft corals. It is also more peaceful and may be kept as a mated pair, or in schools.
The diet of the Black Spot Angel Fish should include marine algae, chopped meaty foods, mysis or frozen shrimp.
