Queen Angelfish
Holocanthus ciliaris
Picture of Queen Angelfish

Description: The queen angelfish (Holacanthus ciliaris) is a large and hardy angelfish commonly found near reefs in the warmer sections of the western Atlantic Ocean. Since they come from the Caribbean, the Queen Angelfish can handle water temperatures a little higher than some other large angels. 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. 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. Your angelfish requires a mature tank where algae is growing well, lots of live rock and a fine sand or coral rubble substrate.

Reef Compatibility: Will nip at sessile invertebrates such as nudibranchs, corals, and clams.

Food and diet: Feed your fish 2 or 3 Times a Day. Feed only proper Angelfish foods that contain vitamin supplements. We use Ocean Nutritions Frozen sponge based food called "Angel Formula". Especially formulated for marine Angelfish Ocean Nutritions frozen food blend contains their primary natural food, namely marine sponges, combined with fresh seafood, oyster meat, scallop roe, fresh seaweed Spirulina, and Nori. We also use and recommend Hikari's Mega Marine Angel food. It includes Sponge, sea algae, sea urchin, sea worms, plankton, krill, shrimp, clam, mussel, squid, spirulina, algae extract, and cod liver oil. Both are excellent frozen foods.

Picture of Juvenile Imperator Angelfish

Description: The Emperor Angelfish is also called the Imperator Angelfish or Imperial Angel. Like two different fish, adult and juvenile emperor angelfish look completely different. It was once thought that the two forms were two completely different species. The body of the juvenile is a dark bluish black. It has a light blue line near the tail with a white circle around it. This white circle is surrounded by alternating light blue and white incomplete circles. When the juvenile reaches a length of between 4 and 5 inches its colors will completely change.

Minimum tank size: Provide a 90 gallon or larger as a juvenile. If you are planning on keeping the same aquarium when the Emperor Angelfish grows up since the Imperator angelfish will grow to roughly 16 inches in the wild it will need a much larger tank. If you deny your Imperator Angel the size aquarium his species requires, there is a good possibility of future 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. Give your Imperator a 220 gallon+ mature tank where algae is growing well, lots of live rock for grazing, shelter, and territory. Along with a live sand substrate for the angel to snack on benthic invertebrates in the sand.

Reef Compatibility: Will nip at sessile invertebrates such as nudibranchs,corals, and clams.
