Blue Girdled Angel Adult 2-3 in. (Pomacanthus navarchu
Commonly know as the Majestic Angelfish, Blue Girdled Angelfish or Navarchus Angel. The Blue Girdled Angelfish undergoes a substantial color and pattern transformation from its Juvenile to adult stage. The Juvenile Blue Girdled Angel is characterized by sharp vertical lines alternating between blue and white. As the Blue Girdled Angel turns into an adult, those lines fade and the adult coloration becomes dominated by a yellow/orange color. The Adult color pattern of the Blue Girdled Angel is characterized by a yellow/orange body framed with blue at the head and just before the tail. The Blue Girdled Angel is one of the most ornate Saltwater Angelfish available to the reef aquarium hobbyist.

Blue Girdled Angels range most of the Indo-Pacific but are mainly collected in the Indian Ocean, near Bali, Indonesia and the Coral Sea. Coral Sea Blue Girdled Angels typically have more orange coloration in the adult stage.

The Blue Girdled Angel can be a shy species of Saltwater fish, so it is a good idea to make sure the it has plenty of hiding places while it acclimates to its new saltwater aquarium. That said, the Blue Girdled Angel is known for being one of the easier saltwater angelfish to keep. The Blue Girdled Angel needs Live Rock for grazing. While most salwater angelfish are known to nip at sessile invertebrates including Live Corall and Tridacnid Clams, many reef aquarists do attempt to stock the Blue Girdled Angel in a home reef tank.

The diet of the Blue Girdled Angelfish should consist of algae, fresh or frozen seafood, and salwater angelfish food preparations containing various sponges.

Related Angels include the Emperor Angel, Annularis Angel, Blueface Angel, and the Chrysurus Angel.
