The Vermiculated Angelfish is an elegant-looking species that exhibits two different tail fin colors - yellow and gray. It does very well in an established tank and acclimatizes more quickly in a reef aquarium. The Vermiculated Angelfish requires plenty of algae and sessile invertebrates to graze upon, that is why, try cultivating healthy algae filaments in a fish only aquarium before adding a vermiculated angelfish. The Vermiculated Angelfish is not considered an aggressive fish, but sometimes it turns aggressive when introducing any new fish in the tank. The Vermiculated Angelfish is more likely to pester newly added species such as gobies, fire fish, and to avoid any aggression between them, it is best to provide them with a larger tank or suitable hiding places. The Vermiculated Angelfish should be kept in a tank not less than 40 gallons, and with lots of hiding places that it can dive into when frightened. It thrives well in a temperature range of 74-82 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4. If the Vermiculated Angelfish is not fed properly, it might become susceptible to diseases. It is also possible to spawn the Vermiculated Angelfish in captivity. It should be fed with a varied diet that includes krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam, flake foods and mussel.
