Natural History: The Fisher's Angelfish is found over rubble on seaward slopes. It is only found in the Central Pacific Ocean.
Husbandry: The Fisher's Angelfish is a small species that is less aggressive than its close relatives. Because of its small size, it can be kept in smaller aquariums. It will nip at Tridacnid clam mantles and may nip at the polyps of stony corals. It is reported to do this less than its close relatives. Other than aggression with other pygmy angelfishes, it is likely to cohabitate well with unrelated species.
