Chaetodontoplus spp. hybrid - The Hybrid Maze Angelfish is an interesting angelfish related to the Blueline, Scribbled, and undescribed Black Phantom Angelfish. It is a beautiful medium/large angelfish with electric blue scribbles and lines. Being hybrids, each individual has a pattern and color as unique as a fingerprint. It has an elegant body shape and personality to go with its stunning beauty.
As wild caught, this genus is considered to be difficult to keep. These fish are captive bred in the USA and are well conditioned and hardier than wild caught, even eating easy-to-feed prepared foods. This is why we can offer a generous 7 day livestock guarantee. It's very important for long term health to offer a wide variety of foods to these omnivores that includes angelfish specific foods containing sponge and tunicate which are essential to its diet. They also readily consume small pellets, frozen mysis, Spirunlina brine shrimp, and seaweed. Young fish should be fed an average of 3 - 5x a day.
This species is somewhat shy but semi-aggressive as an adult and reef safe with caution, as it may pick at coral polyps, LPS corals, soft corals, and clams. The maximum adult size is approximately 8" depending on which parent genes this hybrid inherits. It's imperative to use an acclimation box when introducing these young fish to a tank with established fish. These fish do best in a mature aquarium with area for grazing.
