Remarks: A common import and favorite among aquarists due to its reef-safe nature. All Genicanthus are planktivorous which means they feed from the water column. This angel gets its name from a large black spot on the breast of the males. Often found in pairs or loose groups of females dominated by a male on steep outer reef slopes or high above the substrate. Just like many other Gencanthus, these angels are susceptible to decompression issues due to improper collection and acclimation to shallow depth. This is usually diagnosed by a fish's inability to swim upright or remain stable, constantly trying to swim down. Avoid acquiring individuals exhibiting these symptoms.
