Maculosus Angelfish (Pomacanthus Maculosus), the Yellowbar Angelfish, Half-Moon Angelfish, Yellow-marked Angelfish, Yellowband Angelfish or Yellow-Blotched Angelfish, is a species of marine ray-finned fish, a marine angelfish belonging to the family Pomacanthidae.
Pomacanthus Maculosus has a deep and compressed body with a small mouth that is equipped with small bristle-like teeth. In its juvenile form, at 2", it is deep blue with several white vertical bars. The body is surrounded by a metallic blue color and it has a bright yellow tail. As the fish matures and grows, a bright vertical bar will appear, and the white vertical stripes will disappear. A neon blue irregular pattern will start to show when the fish attains a length of 3-4", the center vertical stripe will turn a vivid yellow, and the tail a transparent yellow. As an adult, the fish will eventually turn a gorgeous blue with a large vertical yellow bar midbody.
The Maculosus Angelfish is a hardy fish and is well suited for both the novice and experienced aquarist. This species grows up to a foot in length, so it should be kept in a 250 gallon or larger tank with only one specimen per tank.
These fish can be aggressive towards fish smaller than themselves. Keep in a pair or group with peaceful fish of similar size. Do not mix with other angelfish species, as there is a risk of hybridization. Other good tank mates include anthias, clownfish, and surgeonfish.It is not a good candidate for a reef aquarium since it is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles.
As a member of the Pomacanthidae family, the Maculosus Angelfish is hermaphroditic, difficult to breed, and indistinguishable in color variations from male to female.
The Maculosus Angelfish is an omnivore feeding mainly on sponges. The diet of this angelfish in the tank should include Spirulina, marine algae, meaty items, and high-quality angelfish preparations containing sponges..
