Natural History: Herald's Angelfish is found on clear-water lagoons and outer reef slopes. It is haremic, with a male defending as many as 4 females. It is also observes singly or in pairs. Males have more angular dorsal and anal fins than females, as well as a dark patch behind their eye.
Husbandry: Herald's Angelfish can be aggressive and should be housed with other semi-aggressive species. Live rock with algae will help in the acclimation process. It will likely nip at the polyps of large-polyped stony corals.
