Yellowbar Angelfish

The Yellowbar Angelfish is a very curious fish and will often approach divers to within a meter. It is one of the largest species of Angelfish reaching almost 20 inches, though most available specimens are less than 12 inches. The characteristic yellow band is clearly visible and will become somewhat more prominent as the fish ages.
