The Cream Angelfish, Apolemichthys xanthurus, has a variety of common names including the Indian Yellowtail Angel, Cream Angel, and sometimes Black Angel. The Cream Angel features a latticed black and cream colored body, a bright yellow tail, a thick opaque black stripe across its white face, and yellow faded colors near its eyes.
The Cream Angel is best cared for:
in a tank of at least 100 gallons with plenty of algae and live rock hiding places
away from sessile inverts, soft corals, and clam mantles as they can be prone to nip
fed a varied omnivorous diet multiple times per day (spirulina, algae, frozen meaty foods, etc.)
away from other angelfish species as they can become territorial
Once fully acclimated to the tank, some other angelfish species may be added as the Cream Angel is relatively more peaceful than some of its counterparts. Only one Cream Angel per tank, however.
