Majestic Angelfish

Majestic Angelfish

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.

  1. This marvelous angelfish is the perfect accent to any marine environment. The magnificent color and grace of the Blue Girdled Angelfish brings out the beauty of any tank it inhabits. When you first acclimate this fish, it will spend the first couple days hiding. He will come out from time to time in the first week and dash back to his hiding spot when he feels threatened. Once your fish is acclimated, he will expose himself to you fear-free. These fish are not extremely aggressive, but they will let other fish know it is there. Food for them should include Spirulina and angel formula, which includes sponges. This amazing fish is a great species for any tank.

  2. Nice fish and very active once established. I would not recommend this fish for a reef enviroment. The fish took a liking to all my mushrooms so I had to sell him. I know who has him and he is still doing great after a year in a fish only tank. I knew I was taking a risk but it’s a beautiful fish and thought I would give it a shot. Quality and shipping was great just a coral eater was my problem.

  3. I can’t speak for all Majestic Angels, but in terms of it being reef safe; the one I have doesn’t pick at SPS, LPS or my clams. I’ve had him for about 2 years now.
