The Griffis Angel Fish is a beautiful angel. As a juvenile, the body is white with a black stripe on the upper half of the fish. As they mature, the coloration on the top half of the fish darkens, and a white stripe takes form.
The Griffis Angel Fish adapts readily to aquarium life. It requires an aquarium with plenty of hiding places and live rock for grazing. Once established, the Griffis Angel Fish may become territorial.
This Angelfish is one of the safer choices of the large Angels for the reef aquarium, and has proven not to pick on sessile invertebrates.
It is hermaphroditic, and there are no distinguishing features to differentiate males from females.
As with other angelfish, the diet should include marine algae, mysis or frozen shrimp, and chopped meaty foods.
