The Eibls Dwarf Angel Fish has a pearlescent body that is highlighted with several vertical, evenly-spaced orange to red stripes. The very back of the body and caudal fin are black. A brilliant sapphire-blue stripe outlines the caudal fin.
Red Stripe Angelfish requires an aquarium with large amounts of live rock for hiding and grazing. With a tendency to be docile, the Red Stripe Angelfish can become more assertive once established.
It may occasionally nip at sessile invertebrates and clam mantles. There are no distinguishing characteristics that help differentiate males from females.
The diet of the Red Stripe Angelfish should include marine algae, mysis or frozen shrimp, and chopped meaty foods.
The Red Stripe Mimic Tang (A.tristis) mimics this Angelfish species.
