Multibar Angelfish (Paracentropyge Multifasciata), the Barred Angelfish, Banded Pygmy-Angelfish, Many-Banded Angelfish, is a species of marine ray-finned fish, a marine angelfish, belonging to the family Pomacanthidae.
The Multibar Angelfish has individual black and yellow vertical bands arranged in an "every other" fashion, with a thin stripe of white bordering each black band. The tail is white to yellow with small black speckles. The mouth, as well as the pelvic and anal fin are yellow. A juvenile can be distinguished by a blue eyespot at the back of the dorsal fin. This species attains a maximum total length of 4½".
As commonly seen with other dwarf angels, the Multibarred Angelfish is a territorial fish, and as such you will have to provide it with a lot of swimming space as well as plenty of crevices, holes and other hiding places. The Multibar Angel requires a minimum tank size of 70 gallons with plenty of hiding places and live rock for grazing.
Although Multibarred Angelfish are often housed in a single species reef tank environment; they can be kept in pairs or in larger groups when provided with a large enough aquarium. They are often housed with surgeonfish, butterfly fish, and other less aggressive tank mates.
Paracentropyge Multifasciata are protogynous hermaphrodites that initially start out as females and the dominant and larger ones turn into males.
