Juvenile Blue Angel

Often confused for a Queen Angel, this is a juvenile Blue Angel - Holacanthus bermudensis, often found off the Florida Coastline. As beautiful as it is, this fish nipped at every item I put in my tank. Corals were not safe, whether hard or soft, and until I gave this fish away to a fellow reefer nothing was able to thrive. The angel enjoyed every food I dropped in the tank, including Nori, Romaine lettuce, and dried Formula 1 & 2 pellets, as well as the variety of frozen foods. Not Reef safe.
