Potters Angelfish

Potters Angelfish

The Potter's Angelfish, or Potter's Pygmy Angelfish, is native to the Islands of Hawaii. The Potters body is a vibrant orange, mazed with dark to pale blue lines. Additionally, the caudal segments of the anal and dorsal fins are a dark blue.

The Potter's Angelfish requires at least a 300 litre, well-established aquarium with a variety of hiding areas and live rock for grazing on micro-algae. It must also be noted that this fish may nip soft corals and sessile invertebrates.

The Potters is a hermaphroditic, and therefore is  extremely difficult to breed in the home aquarium, additionally differentiating males from females is a challenge as there are no distinctive attributes to separate them . On the other hand, many have had success in housing a pair of these angelfish in a large aquarium. Furthermore, individuals have suggested that the Potters has an amazing temperament and is a great addition to any large aquarium.

The Potters Angelfish should be fed a diet of mysis or frozen shrimp, marine algae, spirulina, and other meaty items.
