Blue Spotted Angel fish

Description: The Blue angelfish, Holacanthus bermudensis, is a species of marine angelfish of the family Pomacanthidae. Holocanthus bermudensis should not be confused with Holocanthus ciliaris, or queen angelfish, despite very similar appearances. The Blue Angel has a “crown”, but not as clear as the Queen Angelfish. The markings of both are very close. The Blue Angelfish is purplish to blue the edges of the scales are paler. Dorsal, anal and tail fins have yellowish-brown dots and yellow trim. Ventral fin is yellow with blue trim and the pectoral fins are exactly the opposite – blue with yellow trim
In the aquarium they should be sustained by a wide selection of live, fresh, or frozen and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, chopped krill, chopped clams, chopped squid, marine algae, zucchini, spinach, romaine lettuce, and quality Spirulina-based flake foods for angelfish and herbivores. Feed them at least three small meals a day to help support their fast metabolism. If a specimen doesn't initially eat during acclimation, they can be enticed with live brine shrimp, ghost shrimp, and freshly chopped seafood
 
Reef Compatibility: Will nip at sessile invertebrates such as nudibranchs, corals, and clams
 
Level of Care: Expert only
