Large Angelfish

Large Marine Angelfish are one of the most beautiful of all saltwater aquarium fish you can buy. Large Angelfish colors are deep and rich with stripes and spots and some even have changing patterns as they get older. Marine Angelfish are found in every ocean, although the greatest diversity of the marine angelfish are found in the Indo-Pacific Ocean. They live in the rocky regions around reefs where they can eat coral. The entire Angelfish species can be rather territorial, Saltwater Angelfish like the Imperator Angelfish, Regal Angelfish, and Queen Angelfish are just a few of the larger marine angels often seen in a large saltwater aquarium. Despite their delicate appearance, once acclimated into the large home aquarium expect your large angelfish to be one of your hardiest saltwater fish in your tank.

Large Marine angels are not for the lazy marine aquarist. They will definitely need your effort to allow them to thrive. In the grand scheme of things, when compared to many other saltwater fish species that are available for the home aquarium, large angelfish are decidedly on the delicate side. The best advice to start is always do research prior to purchasing your fish. Look into what is the proper nutrition for the large angelfish you wish to purchase. There are different groupings of angelfish and each grouping has different foods they are eating in the wild. This means the food you feed will need to meet the nutritional requirements of the specific angelfish you are purchasing. Most important though is how much space will the large angelfish you desire require?

Large Angelfish Require Large Real Estate Large angelfish can vary in size from as small as 6 inches to as large as 24 inches or more, depending on the species. If you deny your angelfish the size aquarium his species requires, there there will be health problems. The psychological stress which comes from a saltwater fish not having its necessary size will often show in a break down of the immune response leading to disease. While many times you will observe disease quickly from the stress, the effects of stress may take a long time to become evident. The effects of psychological stress may take weeks, to many months to become evident. Of course all of this will depend on the Angel species and exact circumstances. Another issue with size will depend on the saltwater fish chosen to be with your special angelfish. For example if your angelfish must share the aquarium with a aggressive trigger fish, your aquarium must be large enough for your angel to be able to escape the trigger's aggressive attentions. Without adequate aquarium size the health of the angelfish kept under such conditions will suffer sooner or later. Finally there is one other issue that needs to be pointed out when considering how much aquarium space is needed. Consider 2 saltwater fish species, both the same physical size but one fish, in this case the Angelfish you are considering requires a much larger aquarium. Why? Because that angelfish in the ocean has a huge ocean territory. While the other fish though the same physical size has a much smaller territory he lives in and defends. Therefore for your angelfish to be healthy make sure the aquarium size you choose or the Large Angelfish you choose is based on the actual size requirements of your marine fish and not by the fit of the furniture in your home.

Special Note: When you see "Aquarium Conditioned" on one of our featured saltwater fish, it means the fish have gone through our Aquarium Conditioning Process which is from 26 days to 60 days long, depending on species. During this time the arriving ocean fresh fish first go through Quarantine, then go into our aquarium life systems. In our aquarium life systems they will get used to aquarium life and we work on getting them to eat well through a special process we use to change ocean fresh saltwater fish over to our aquarium conditioned fish. The process includes enough time to let us have confidence sending marine fish to you knowing they will do well in proper aquarium conditions and they will also eat well, which are the two most important factors if you expect a long life saltwater aquarium fish.

Temperature can be safely up to 82 degrees for the Queen of the Caribbean. Queen angelfish get their royal title from the speckled, blue-ringed black spot on their heads that resembles a crown. Queen angels are among the most strikingly colorful of all reef fishes. They are shy fish, found either alone or often in pairs. If you order a Juvenile Queen Angelfish, the Small size will be in total Juvenile colors and pattern. The Medium and Large Juvenile will have a coloration and pattern a mixture of the Juvenile and Adult.

Tank Recommendations:Fairly large they can grow up to 18 inches in length. Large angelfish require large real estate. If you deny your queen angel the size aquarium his species requires, there will be health problems.

Picture of Juvenile Imperator Angelfish
