The Yellow Angelfish from the Cook Islands is also known as the False Lemonpeel Angelfish, and is completely bright yellow in color. They resemble the Lemonpeel Angelfish with the exception of the blue markings around the eyes and the edges of the fins.
The Yellow Angelfish requires a 70 gallon or larger aquarium with hiding places and large amounts of live rock for grazing. In the reef aquarium, this species may nip at large-polyped stony corals, some soft coral polyps, and clam mantles.
The diet of the Yellow Angelfish should include Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items.

This angelfish has a lot of personality. It can be seen constantly swimming between the live rock and greeting people in the front of the display. I would recommend that you add this fish at the same time as other aggressive fish because this fish will bite back.
