The Golden Passer Angelfish

An one-of-a-kind aberrant Holacanthus passer

The adult specimen is unlikely a Clarion x Passer hybrid because it was collected well north of where Clarions exist.  The shape and pattern on its body (namely its broad white stripe) also point to this being an amelanistic Passer Angelfish.


Christina Jayne of Baja Reef supplied these images of this incredible angelfish.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
