  • Description
  • The Emperor Angelfish is one of the most sought after Angelfish in the hobby. With a maximum size of around 15 inches, the Emperor Angel will be the showpiece fish in any aquarium it inhabits. Also with such a large size, the Emperor Angelfish requires an aquarium of at least 180 gallons to be successfully kept.

    As a juvenile, the Emperor has some of the most stunning colors and marking of any reef fish. With its electric blue body covered in white and light blue stripes. As the Emperor Angel starts changing to an adult, a lot more yellow is prominent. As a full adult, the Emperor Angel has a dark blue body with yellow horizontal lines along its body. Its face is covered with a black band as well.

    The Emperor Angel is suggested not to be placed in a reef aquarium, since it can pick and nip at soft and hard corals as well as clams. As with many fish, it’s always up to the individual fish as to if a specimen can be kept in a reef tank successful. There have definitely been cases where Emperor Angelfish have been kept successfully in reef aquariums with no coral damage.

    The Emperor Angelfish will flourish the best if given ample rock to graze on algae off of and to having hiding places. Being an omnivore, the Emperor Angelfish requires a diet rich in mysis shrimp, Spirulina and algae to thrive. Given these conditions, the Emperor Angel should be a great addition to your tank.
