Overview:

One of the most amazing things about keeping a juvenile Koran angelfish is to watch the transformation of the colour pattern as it changes from a juvenile to an adult. The Koran angelfish tends to occur in coral-rich habitats where it hunts for the sponges and tunicates that make up the majority of its diet. The Koran angelfish tends to be a solitary fish, though it is likely to be a haremic species like its close relatives. The Koran angelfish needs plenty of good hiding places to dart into when frightened, as well as unobstructed swimming room.
