The Flagfin Angelfish is also commonly known as the three-spot
angelfish and can be easily identified by its vibrant yellow
coloring and its bright blue 'lips'.
It has a large spot above
its eyes and a further two spots by its gills, hence the name
'three-spot angelfish'. Like other angelfish, only a single
species should be kept in a tank to avoid aggressive behaviour.
The Flagfin Angelfish is hermaphroditic and visibly you cannot
distinguish between males and females.
