Part 2 of Genicanthus Angels: The True Reef-Safe Angels.
In the first of a three-part series, Fadi Abu Tahoun discusses Genicanthus angelfish and their requirements in the reef aquarium.
The emperor angelfish (Pomacanthus imperator) is the most well-known angel fish in the aquarium industry, With striking colors, bold body, combined with personality and an attitude, It is not only me but also many other hobbyist consider it the most beautiful fish. It is readily available and relatively hardy fish and will thrive in most aquariums given certain requirements of nutrition, water quality and space.
The Venustus Angelfish or Purple Masked Angelfish, or Paracentropyge venusta, is one of the rare fish species, but it is becoming more available recently in the aquarium fish industry. It is expert only fish, reef safe with caution. In my tank, it rarely nip on Acropora corals. But leave other corals and clams alone.
Feeding Fish and Corals

My Tank is a 180 Gallons reef tank with emperor angelfish, purple tang, yellow tang, blue hippo tang, some clowns, wrasses, gobies and anthias. The angelfish and tangs are eating machines and need verity of mixed and nutritional food to keep them healthy...
