Flagfin Angelfish (Apolemichthys trimaculatus)

The Flagfin Angelfish or Apolemichthys trimaculatus is a bright yellow saltwater fish with blue lips, and a dark spot above its eyes. This species of Angelfish can be kept in an aquarium of at least 80 gallons and is just one of the over 80 different species of Angelfish in the world. Be careful if you are going to house this with other Angelfish, they can become quite aggressive with towards one another.

Also referred to as the Threespot Angelfish, it is not the easiest fish to care for because of its strict diet. They normally feed on sponges, but some people have gotten them to take to brine shrimp, mysis shrimp and various plant life. Flagfin Angelfish should also have plenty of live rock and lots of places to hide. This will help them live longer, stress free lives. The following aquarium conditions are acceptable, 72-78° F, dKH 8-12, pH 8.1-8.4, and sg 1.020-1.025. The Flagfin Angelfish can reach about 10" in maximum length.
