The flowing shaped fins particularly on the males earn the fish its name. The curvature of the dorsal fins are reminiscent of a robed emperor. Both males and females are pretty yet easy to tell apart. Females have green eyes and males have blue eyes. These fish need to be kept in a school to keep them happy. Simply giving them homework will not do the trick.
