False Personifer Angelfish (Chaetodontoplus meredithi) Care
The False Personifer Angelfish, Chaetodontoplus meredithi, also known as the Queensland Yellowtail Angelfish. They come from the Southwestern Pacific, including Australia. Males have a longer body and have a bluer on the face with raised yellow spots. Females sport a brownish face and the rest of their body is black separated by a thick white vertical stripe. They also have yellow fins.
False Personifer Angelfish are omnivores that require a diet of marine algae, sponges, angelfish food, and a variety of meaty foods.
They do best in an aquarium that is at least 180 gallons or more and has plenty of live rock to graze on and hide in. They do not do well with other angelfish or fish that are similar in size or appearance to themselves.
They are considered reef safe with caution because they have been known to nip at clam mantles and corals.
