The Flagfin angelfish are a great color addition and a mid-size angelfish, but ensure there is a good independent aquatic store in the area. This particular species requires a sponge diet which is difficult to replicate.
Scientific Name: Apolemichthys trimaculatus
Max Size: 10"
diet: mixed fare of sponge-containing frozen angelfish rations, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, a plethora of plant material
Requires 125+ gallon tank
because of its strict dietary restrictions, we recommend this one stays with the experts. Because it eats mainly sponges and doesn't adapt to well to other foods, this fish can be difficult to keep.
