Watanabei Angelfish (Male)
The Watanabe Angelfish named for famed Dr. Watanabe by his colleagues is the finest looking example of the hardy swallowtail angelfish group. These fish do well in most marine aquariums. Due to the high price of Wanatabe angels it is best not to mix different swallowtail angelfish species in the same tank to avoid fighting and injury. In the wild the Watanabe Angelfish runs in harems, about one happy (or unhappily exhausted) male to five females.
