As an adult, the primarily pale-tan body has five nearly evenly-spaced dark brown stripes. The sixth stripe is white and just behind the eye. Dark blue polka-dots cover the entire body, while vibrant sapphire-blue dots cover the caudal fin and back portion of the anal fin.
The Six Bar Angelfish are hermaphroditic, difficult to breed, and indistinguishable in color from male to female.
They require an aquarium with many hiding places, large amounts of live rock will also help create a good environment.
The Six Bar Angel Fish may nip at stony and soft corals and clam mantles.
The diet of the Six Bar Angel Fish should include marine algae, mysis or frozen shrimp, and chopped meaty foods.
