Overview

  The family Pomacanthidae is comprised of nine genera and about ninety species, perhaps better known as angelfish. The marine angelfish, much like its freshwater counterpart, is laterally compressed and roughly disc shaped in appearance. From there, the wide array of species exhibits some of the most spectacular coloring in the marine hobby. There are also a wide selection of sizes, from the tiny pygmy angels up to the giants like the Queen angel. Angelfish are feeders on sponges and polyps so generally they do not make good reef inhabitants.

There are exceptions, perhaps, but it is strongly advised that you research your choice thoroughly to ensure that you will be able to provide the proper space and food for these amazing angelfish.
