The Blue Angelfish is one of the most striking of all angelfish. Vibrant yellow and electric sapphire-blue highlights give the Blue Angelfish an almost iridescent appearance. It has a dark spot on the forehead surrounded by bright blue. The dorsal and pelvic fins are elongated.
The Blue Angelfish can reach a length of 20 inches as an adult. It therefore requires a 250 gallon or larger tank. The tank should contain large amounts of live rock for hiding and grazing. Blue Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals.
A varied diet should be provided which includes Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, and frozen shrimp.
