The Conspicuous Angel is also known as the Conspic Angel or Spectacled Angel. As an adult, it is blue-gray with a gold sheen. The face is bright yellow with very distinctive bright blue rings around the eyes.

It requires ample hiding places, room to swim, and an aquarium with live rock on which it can graze algae. It is not overly aggressive except towards other angels. It normally feeds on microalgae and sponges, and is moderately hardy in an aquarium if given special care. It is sensitive to high levels of copper based medications.

The Conspicuous Angel is extremely difficult to breed in an aquarium, and has no distinguishing characteristics to help differentiate males from females.
