The BlueFace Angel is commonly referred to as the Blueface, Yellowface, or Yellowmask Angelfish, the adult and juvenile Blueface Angelfish differs markedly in coloration. In its juvenile stage, its body is covered with alternating vertical stripes of black, white, and sapphire blue. On maturing it turns pale yellow with bluish scales and a bright-yellow pectoral fin. With this beautiful color combination, the BlueFace Angel makes a great showpiece species in a tank. The BlueFace Angel features an eyespot at the caudal end of the dorsal fin, which gives it a distinct look and appearance. The BlueFace Angel should be kept in a tank of not less than 220 gallons along with plenty of hiding places to hide; and live rocks that encourages the growth of algae on which it can feed in between the meals. The BlueFace Angel may found nipping over the stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles, that?s why it should not be considered safe for a reef aquarium. It is best to keep the BlueFace Angelfish singly, so make sure not to house it with any other Angelfish. The BlueFace Angel should be given a diet that includes Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items. The BlueFace Angel thrives well in a temperature rage of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4.

This animal is morphing from the juvenile picture into the adult picture.A spectacular Angel, this species can do well if his needs are met.The Blueface can become bold over time, but is generally less aggressive than many angels. The adults of this incredible species have body scales with blue centers and yellow edges, a yellow dorsal and caudal fin, and a black spot at the posterior base of the dorsal. The face is blue, with small yellow spots. The Blueface Angel should be provided with plenty of swimming space, as well as a number of suitable hiding places and kept only with relatively peaceful tankmates.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.
