overview


The Chrysurus Angelfish, also referred to as the Goldtail Angelfish or Ear Spot Angelfish, is an uncommon aquarium member because very few are collected for the aquarium industry. It has a body of mottled-brown with vertical white stripes. There are several bright sapphire-blue stripes on the head, and the tail is a dull yellow rimmed in the same sapphire-blue. As a juvenile, the tail is clear in coloration until they reach 3 to 4 inches, at which time it begins to develop the yellow coloration.

The Chrysurus Angelfish requires a 100 gallon or larger aquarium with multiple hiding places and large amounts of live rock for grazing. Not a good reef dweller, the Chrysurus Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles, but may be kept with small-polyped stony corals and somewhat noxious soft corals. When stressed, the Chrysurus Angelfish makes an unusual clicking sound.

As other angelfish, it is hermaphroditic, and there are no distinguishing characteristics to differentiate males and females. It is difficult to breed in an aquarium.

The diet of the Chrysurus Angelfish should include Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items.
