The Majestic Angelfish is one of the more mellow large angelfish and usually does not display aggression towards its tankmates, with the possible exception of other large angels and conspecifics introduced after it has established itself.
One of the smaller full size angelfish, it reaches a maximum adult size of approximately 10 inches, is a slow grower, and will rarely attain this size in an aquarium.
Recommended tank size:
Ideally, it should be provided with an established 90+ gallon aquarium setup with a live sand substrate (they enjoy snacking on benthic invertebrates) and plenty of live rock for grazing, shelter, and territory.
They should also have plenty of open swimming space and strong water movement in addition to high intensity lighting.
Will nip at sessile invertebrates such as nudibranchs, corals, and clams.
Food and Diet:
In the aquarium they should be sustained by a wide selection of live, fresh, or frozen and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, chopped krill, chopped clams, chopped squid, marine algae, zucchini, spinach, romaine lettuce, and quality Spirulina-based flake foods for angelfish and herbivores.
Feed them at least three small meals a day to help support their fast metabolism.
If a specimen doesn't initially eat during acclimation, they can be enticed with live brine shrimp, ghost shrimp, and freshly chopped seafood.
Level of Care: Moderate
Approximate Purchase Size:
Small 2" to 3"; Medium 3" to 3-1/2"; Large: 5" to 6"
