The Moorish Idol, Zanclus Cornutus, The Moorish Idol stands out in contrasting bands of black, white and yellow, and an elegant filamentous dorsal, that if damaged, can grow back quite quickly and easily. Due to it's extreme social need, it is best to keep a mated pair in one aquarium. This will help with acclimating as well as the success for survival. 

Space is absolutely essential for keeping Moorish Idol successfully, so they should also be provided with plenty of unobstructed swimming space, as well as ample hiding places to take refuge when feeling threatened. The tank should also be well established, with plenty of algae for grazing in between meals, as well as excellent filtration and vigorous water movement, to help promote pristine environment conditions.
