    Do you have a pic of the fish in question?
    The true queen angels (Holacanthus ciliaris) are from carribbean region.
    Unless the angel you refering to is the singapore or vermiculated angel (Chaetodontoplus mesoleucus).

    Maybe ask the supplier then, the list should have the scientific name on it.
