The Gray Poma Angel is a black and gray Angelfish with Yellow lining in its dorsal fin, caudal fin, and face. This fish originates from the Indo-Pacific and needs a very varied diet along with plenty of rock to pick at. This Angel is definitely not reef safe, as they will pick at corals and fleshy invertebrates. A protein skimmer and UV sterilizer is a must as this fish is very sensitive. Pellets soaked in Vitamin C is also a good idea to boost the immune system to defend against disease. Do not mix with other large Angels, or anything too aggressive.
