The Majestic Angelfish, also called the Blue Girdled Angelfish, has yellow scales with blue margins and a dark blue band, or girdle, that covers the face and extends backward. The girdle is highlighted with neon blue margins.
It requires a tank of 180 gallons or more with multiple hiding places and live rock for grazing. The Blue Girdled Angelfish is not a good reef dweller, being prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles. It generally will not harm small-polyped stony corals and somewhat noxious soft corals.
It is said that the Majestic Angelfish while somewhat shy, is one of the easier angelfish to keep as long as the right requirements are met. Additionally, it should get on with other angelfish also as long as the other angelfish is not overly aggressive and not another Majestic Angelfish.
The Majestic Angelfish should be fed a diet of Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items.
