Blue Line Angelfish For Sale
Blue Line Angelfish, also called Chaetodontoplus septentrionalis or Blue-Striped Angelfish. It is as striking as an adult as it is in it’s juvenile coloration. This very hardy fish is a great addition to a fish only aquarium. Shy and secretive upon initial introduction, this fish will quickly learn to come out and eat and be more aggressive once it’s territory is established.
It is not a good idea to mix full size angelfish with each other unless the aquarium is 180 gallons or more. Juveniles are marked with blue and white vertical lines. Adult coloration is very different with electric blue stripes and a dark mustard body color.
Diet of Blue Line Angelfish
Feed a varied diet consisting of large chunks of meaty foods. These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel. It is also a good idea to occasionally supplement with some type of herbivore diet containing spirulina and supplement with a sponge fortified formula specifically for Angelfish. The Blue-line Angelfish is a mid–sized angelfish with dazzling blue horizontal stripes on its orange to brownish body. The face has more intricate wavy blue lines.
The Blue-line Angelfish is a relatively hardy angelfish once established and makes a good intermediate level angelfish. It is best kept with other semi-aggressive fish in a larger tank with plenty of live rock or ornamental structures. It is best kept singly, however maybe added last with other smaller angelfish species. The Blue-line Angelfish will graze algae and may nip at some types of coral.
Juveniles are attractive too, being mostly black with bright bold yellow accents. They start out with a yellow band at the rear of the head, a yellow tail fin, and yellow margins along the back of the dorsal and anal fins. But as they mature they begin the fascinating metamorphosis into adult coloration. At about 1 inch or so (2.5 – 3 cm) their color begins to lighten, becoming a brown with faint blue stripes along the body and on the face. Gradually the yellow markings fade from all but the tail fin, replaced by vibrant blue stripes on a yellow or orangish brown background.
