Fish Info:
Blue Girdled Angelfish (Pomacanthus navarchus)
Family: Pomacanthidae
Local Name: Majestic Angelfish
Max Size: 15cm to 20cm
Care Level: Moderate
Min Tank Volume: 800L
Temperature: 23-29°C
Salinity: 1.020-1.026sg
pH: 8-8.4
Hardness: 8-12dKH
Origin: Indo-Pacific, Maldives, Solomon Islands.
Habitat: Multiple hiding places and live rock for grazing.
Diet: Vegetable matter such as Spirulina and marine algae, meaty items such as mysis shrimp, and high-quality angelfish preparations containing sponges, flakes and pellets.
Behaviour: Can be aggresive and very territorial especially to other angels.
Suitability: With caution.
Description: The Blue Girdled Angelfish, also called the Majestic Angelfish, has yellow scales with blue margins and a dark blue band, or girdle, that covers the face and extends backward. The girdle is highlighted with neon blue margins.

While somewhat shy, this angel is one of the easier angelfish to keep. It requires a tank of 180 gallons or more with multiple hiding places and live rock for grazing. The Blue Girdled Angelfish is not a good reef dweller, being prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles. It generally will not harm small-polyped stony corals and somewhat noxious soft corals.
