False Personifer Angelfish

Please Note: Due to variations within species, your item may not look identical to the image provided. Approximate size range may also vary between individual specimen.



The False Personifer Angelfish, also known as the Bluemask Angelfish, has an unusual, almost blistered appearance to its body which is generally black. The face is blue-green and the males have a speckled yellow face. A swatch of yellow covers the forehead and the caudal fin is also yellow and split with a blue-green band. This is one of the few species of angelfish where the males differ morphologically from the females. In this case, the males have a slightly longer body than females.A 180 gallon or larger tank with large quantities of live rock should be provided. Not a good reef dweller, the Personifer Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles.

The diet should consist of Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items.
