Marine Fish – Angle(Large Size)

Marine Large Angelfish belong to the Pomacanthidae family, and are classified into seven different genera which include: Pomacanthus, Holacanthus, Pygoplities, Apolemichthys, Euxiphipops, Chaetodontoplus, and Genicanthus. Some Angels in this group undergo drastic color changes from juvenile to adult patterns. Unlike most other Angelfish, some members of genus Genicanthus have distinguishing color differences between males and females. Males are usually larger and more colorful than females of the same species. The largest Pomacanthus Angel reaches a maximum size of over 20 inches in the wild. All Angelfish can be distinguished from their closest relative the Butterflyfish, by the characteristic spine on their lower cheek. This spine is used defensively, but can also be used in aggression.

Angels are found throughout the world, and are most commonly associated with coral reefs. They inhabit lagoons, reef slopes, drop offs, rocky areas, rubble areas, and areas of rich coral formations.

Most members of this group of fish are found in pairs or harems in the wild. A harem consists of one male and several females. Most Angels that form harems in the wild are capable of changing sex. If the male of the harem is eaten by a predator or dies, the dominant female can change sex to become the dominant male. The fish will actually change form, and will also have the ability to successfully spawn with other females. The breeding of Angelfish in an aquarium is extremely difficult. It is advisable not to introduce Angels from the same genus into one aquarium, as fighting will usually occur.

In the wild, the diet of Large Angelfish consists of microalgae, macroalgae, sponges, and zooplankton. Some juvenile Angels in this group act as cleaners when very young, picking parasites and dead tissue from other fish in the wild. In an aquarium, most angelfish should be fed a diet including vegetable matter and meaty items. High-quality angelfish preparations containing sponges are also advised
