The Annularis Angelfish is also referred as the Blue Ring Angelfish and Blue King Angelfish due to its brilliant sapphire stripes over a predominantly blue body and whitish tail. It is an extremely popular and hardy angelfish. With its beautiful design and pattern, this Annularis Angelfish is adorned with irregular rear semicircles that make a captivating addition to any tank. The Adult Annularis Angelfish requires a tank not less than 100 gallons or larger tank with large amounts of live rocks for hiding and grazing upon slimy algae and cyanobacteria. Therefore we suggest you to add plenty of live rocks that can encourage the growth of algae on it. Since the Annularis Angelfish has the propensity to topple soft corals and clam mantles, it doesn?t make a good reef candidate. But Juvenile specimens are less risky for a reef aquarium since they primarily feed on algae and tiny animals that live in the algae. The Annularis Angelfish should be given a varied diet of spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, and mysis or frozen shrimp, and feeding three times a day makes them healthy. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Annularis Angelfish is semi-aggressive towards similar looking fishes or other angelfish species. Therefore, the Annularis Angelfish should be kept by itself, and should not be housed with the similar looking fishes.
(A) Alert - This fish cannot be kept with other Angelfish. If you're attempting to purchase two or more Angelfish for the same aquarium it will cause them to fight and most likely one will not survive, so if you're placing an order that has 2 or more Angelfish in it we will have to place the order on hold until we're able to contact you to ensure you're not putting them into the same tank. If you understand they cannot be kept together, but would like to purchase two or more in the same order(separate tanks, group order, etc.) you will need to write in the Special Instructions area at the end of the shopping cart that you understand they cannot be kept together. Tremendous time and effort is put into ensuring the health of these fish and it is very important that you're fully aware two Angelfish should not be kept in the same tank.This beautiful fish will grow up to almost 10 inches in length. The dark blue background of this fish is accented by the lighter colored vertical stripes. This fish likes to roam throughout all levels of the tank.The Angelfish family is a group of colorful and elegant fish that are adored by boththe serious and casual observer. These fish are mainly available to the hobbyistunder the Genus Pomacanthus and Centropyge. Pomacanthus Angels are the larger morerobust species. The Centropyge Genus are made up of smaller fish that feed primarilyon algae from the reef surface. The adult Pomacanthus Angels usually have longdorsal and anal fins and a rounded face. The Pomacanthus Angels will change colorquite dramatically from their juvenile stage to adult stage. The Centropyge Angelsare found predominantly in the Indo-Pacific while only a couple of species, like thePygmy and Flameback Angels, are found in the Atlantic and Caribbean. At the sametime, the Pomacanthus Angels dominate the Atlantic and Caribbean while in theIndo-Pacific they are less prominent. The Centropyge Angels do not change colordramatically from their juvenile stage to adult stage. These smaller Angels areoften seen milling around reefs which they use for both shelter and as a foodsource. Angelfish are differentiated from Butterflyfish by the small spine thatextends from the bottom of their rear gill cover.
