Cream Angelfish

The Xanthurus Cream Angelfish is also referred to as the Indian Yellowtail Angelfish, Cream Angelfish, or Yellowtail Black Angelfish. True to its Latin name, the caudal fin is yellow. The dorsal fin is outlined with a silvery-white line.

Requirements
The Xanthurus Cream Angelfish adapts readily to aquarium life. It requires a minimum of a 125 gallon tank or larger with lots of hiding places and live rock for grazing will offer an environment in which to thrive. It is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles. Only one specimen should be kept per tank.

Suggestions 

It is hermaphroditic, and there are no distinguishing features which differentiate males from females.

Feeding
As with other angelfish, the diet should include Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items.
