    The Spotbreast Angelfish (Genicanthus melanospilos) is a colorful addition to any saltwater tank, even one with corals. Yes, reef safe angelfish do exist and the Spotbreast is one of the few that are considered 100% reef safe.

    Yeah, often. All of the Genicanthus are reef safe, and you can usually keep multiple species together. I've got G. watanabei and G. lamarck together. Really nice fish.

    as far as I know, the largest female turns into a male. Lamarck angles does that. I got a male (used to be female) and a much smaller female.
