Species Description
Rarely seen in the trade, the Resplendent Angelfish is one of the dwarf-dwarf or pygmy Angelfish. It is very hardy and adapts well to aquarium life. The main reason for the high price tag is the fact that they are only found around two extremely remote islands in the mid-Atlantic called St. Helena and the Ascension Islands. The Ascension government placed a ban on the collection of all marine life including this Angelfish. The Resplendent Angelfish now on the market are coming form various Aqua Culture facilities around the world and only a few at a time are being released. In 1996, The World Conservation Union placed this species of Angelfish on its Red List of Threatened Animals. It is currently the only Pomacanthidae species on this list. They are extremely aggressive towards their own kind and may pester fish of similar size or color. They are very well suited for a semi-aggressive community tank and can hold their own against larger fish. They do best in aquariums utilizing live rock for filtration or decoration. They are not known to pick at corals or clams but caution is still advised. They will completely ignore any non-sessile invertebrates such as shrimp or crabs.
