The Cortez Angelfish (Pomacanthus zonipectus) can be found among the reefs in the Sea of Cortez. Juveniles have a black body with yellow vertical stripes which transitions into a deep blue. As they mature, they change to a grey or brown with a solid yellow stripe behind their gills and a faded gold design on their body. They frequent large seaward reefs where they feed on a variety of foods, including crustaceans, clams, algae and coral polyps. They do well in large fish-only systems and should be kept with fish of similar size and temperament. They require significant room to swim and a well balanced diet of vitamin-enriched mysis, silversides and seaweed. Reaching a maximum size of 18 inches, adults should not be housed in an aquarium smaller than 250 gallons.

The first Cortez Angelfish arrived DOA but they refunded me quickly and the second one arrived and I could not be happier. Grateful for the good service and the speed they replaced the DOA.
