Overview

The Goldflake Angelfish, also known as the Gold-spangled Angelfish, displays beautiful gold spots throughout the body. The mouth region of this angel is brightly colored in blue and the fins, which are black in color, are bordered by a striking blue.

A single Goldflake Angelfish will do well in a tank of at least 125 gallons with plenty of hiding places. Once established, the Goldflake Angelfish may become territorial. This Angelfish is one of the safer choices of the large Angels for the reef aquarium, and has proven not to pick on sessile invertebrates.

This was once a very rare Angelfish to the hobby and has recently become available. Little is known about the reproductive behaviors of this fish.

A varied diet of angelfish preparations, marine algae, live rock for grazing, and vitamin-fortified shrimp should be provided.
