The Six Banded Angelfish, Pomacanthus sexstriatus, also known as the Sixbar Angel or Sixband Angel, features a pale yellow/cream body with one vertical white stripe just behind the eyes followed by five black vertical stripes on the body and blue polka dots across its tail back fins. Like many large Angelfish their appearance will change dramatically from the juvenile to adult stage. Due to aggression towards other Angelfish they are best kept singly but will do well with other larger fish.
They are not reef safe, as they will nip at soft and stony polyp corals, sessile invertebrates and clam mantles. Diet should include a variety of spirulina, marine algae, high quality angelfish preparations, mysis and brine shrimp, 3 times daily.
Juveniles will display a coloration of a black body and vertical white and blue stripes, including a thick white stripe behind the eye.
