This fish starts off a gorgeous blue with circular swirling white lines. The juvenile changes as it grows into an adult with a blue body with bright yellow horizontal stripes; a black mask with blue edging also develop on its face. This striking fish can be found in several places including Fiji, Indonesia, Maldives, Africa. In your home aquarium be sure to have lots of rock work to provide hiding places. Can be kept with many fish including dwarf angels. Avoid large angels.
We highly recommend quarantine.
