Watanabe's Lyretail Angel Fish also known as the Watanabei Swallowtail Angelfish is found around Taiwan, Pitcairn Is, Ryukyus, New Caledonia and Austral Island.

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 Male Watanabe's Lyretail Angelfish is an iridescent pale blue. The lower half of the body and anal fin of the male are highlighted by long, horizontal dark stripes and one, horizontal orange stripe extending toward the caudal fin. The female is an iridescent pale blue with a dark dorsal fin and does not have stripes other than a dark outline to the dorsal and anal fins.

Watanabe's Lyretial Angelfish are best housed as a male-female pair and are ideal candidates for the deep-water reef aquarium. Acclimation will be facilitated by a dimly-lit tank. The tank should have multiple hiding places and live rock for grazing.

Do not keep two males in the same tank as fighting will ensue. The Watanabe's Lyretail Angelfish are hermaphroditic and difficult to breed. 

A varied diet of meaty foods such as vitamin-enriched brine shrimp and finely-chopped crustacean flesh, marine algae, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items will provide good nutrition.
