Fish of the Week | Bellus Angelfish

The Bellus Angelfish is one of the few angelfish displaying sexual dimorphism so you can look up pictures to tell males from females. It is also one of the few angelfish that is reef safe.

The Bellus Anglefish is best to keep as a male-female pair or small harem of one male and few females. If a male Beluus Angelfish dies, one of the more aggressive females can change sex and take his place. Males can even revert back to female if no females are present in the aquarium.

These deep water angels prefer lower light so in brightly lit reef aquariums they will benefited from overhangs and shady areas. A varied diet of meaty foods such as vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, plus spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations containing sponge, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items will provide good nutrition.
