hinking of purchasing an Angelfish? Then this article is just for you. Similarly, if you've attempted to keep one of these magnificent animals in the past only to encounter problems, then the next few pages should help tremendously. Of all the fish that can be found on a tropical coral reef, there is nothing more majestic than angelfish. Indeed, if my experience over the past few decades dealing with and helping people in this hobby is any indication, this group of fish is near the top of the list in popularity. Although definitely not for everyone, this doesn't stop just about every marine aquarist from lusting after and trying their hand at keeping one of these beauties in his or her living room at some point or another in his/her fish keeping careers. The results as with any species can run the gamut, but there are concerns with these genera that I think warrant a detailed look.Specific Care Information: A single small Majestic Angel should have an aquarium of at least 60 gallons in volume. Temperatures for Majestic Angels should remain between 75 and 79 degrees Fahrenheit (24 to 26 degrees Celsius). A pH value of 8.3 to 8.4 is recommended, with a specific gravity between 1.020 and 1.025. If Majestic Angels are kept in tanks with invertebrates, the salinity levels should remain above 1.022 to accommodate these inhabitants. Plenty of open space for swimming should be provided, along with plenty of hiding places. Although Majestic Angelfish may be kept in aquariums with other animals, some show tendencies to nip at clam mantles and hard and soft corals. They may be rather aggressive toward other fish and will not tolerate conspecifics or fish of similar size and color. Majestic Angels should be fed a varied diet. Often, squid, shrimp, mussel pieces, and spinach can work well. Picky eaters can sometimes be tempted with mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, or daphnia.Common Name: Majestic , Blue Gilled Angelfish
