Description

The Blue Spot Angel can be shy and difficult to feed when it first arrives. Provide it with a large, mature tank with live rock for grazing. It’s not typically aggressive, but may be aggressive toward or bullied by other angelfish. It should be fed several times a day with angelfish foods, algae, Spirulina brine, mysis, and clams. It may eat corals, clams, and other ornamental sessile invertebrates in the reef aquarium.
