As an adult, the primarily pale-tan body has five nearly evenly-spaced dark brown stripes. The sixth stripe is white and just behind the eyes. Dark blue polka-dots cover the entire body, while vibrant sapphire-blue dots cover the caudal fin and back portion of the anal fin.The Six-banded Angelfish are hermaphroditic, and indistinguishable in color from male to female.It is a large fish and requires a 180 gallon or larger tank with many hiding places; large amounts of live rock will also help create a good environment. Not a good reef dweller, the Six-banded Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals and clam mantles.The diet of the Six-banded Angelfish should include Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysid or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items.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.
