They have been known to chase after tangs and damselfish that are indigenous to the area they are found in, quite possibly to keep them away from their food source. Keeping with smaller cardinalfish, gobies, tilefish, butterflyfish, fairy basslets, fairy and flasher wrasses, needs to be monitored. Their aggression toward these more peaceful fish will be heightened in smaller tanks, under 55 gallons. Adding this dwarf angelfish after these more peaceful fish in a larger tank may be successful. Small but very territorial fishes like dottybacks should be monitored unless in very large tanks, but with the high cost of the Yellowhead Angelfish, it would be wise to just say no.

The Herald’s Angelfish was described by Woods & Schultz in 1953. It is found in the Pacific Ocean from Taiwan to the Tuamoto Island and from Southern Japan to the Great Barrier Reef. In the Coral Sea area of the Great Barrier Reef, the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Tonga and the Philippines the specimens can have a black saddle back and/or the back half of the dorsal fin being black.This species is on the IUCN Red List as Least Concern (LC) as this dwarf angelfish has a large population and a wide distribution. Though some are collected for the pet industry there are no major threats currently identified. Common names it is known by include Heraldi Angelfish as well as several that describe its coloring including Yellow Angelfish, Yellow Pygmy Angelfish, False Lemonpeel Angelfish, and Golden Angelfish.The name Woodhead’s Angelfish and Woodhead’s Pygmy Angelfish were derived from an inaccurately named color variation found in the Coral Sea area (near the Great Barrier Reef). This variant has black on the dorsal fin and so was thought to be a different species. It was initially described as but is now recognized as the same species.In the wild this species will commonly cross breed with the Bicolor Angelfish , which has been found in the Philippines. This dwarf angelfish also looks very similar to the Lemonpeel Angelfish . They are both yellow, but the Lemonpeel has a blue edging on the gill area as well as blue edging on the tail fin and anal fin. Sometimes there is blue around the eye area, such is the case with a Pacific variant of Lemonpeel. Today some efforts are being made to breed this and several other types of angelfish in captivity, which is a worthy effort though expensive and often cost prohibitive.

The Herald’s Angelfish are found in different types of environments depending on where they are from, yet in all these areas they show a preference for clearer water with no turbidity. They can be found on lagoon patch reefs and outer-reef slopes from 16 feet down to 295 feet (5-90 m), on steep reef slopes from between 49 to 131 feet (15-40 m), and on rubble slopes from between 30 to 66 feet (9-20 m). Foods they eat In the wild they feed primarily on benthic algae and weeds. Usually within these foods are zoobenthos, small animals that live near the sea bed and can include copepods, etc, that are inadvertently ingested. They will also consume cnidarians, hard corals, sponges, tunicates and ascidians (sea squirts). Does anyone know how much freshwater angelfish cost at petco? I've tried looking on their website but haven't found anything. Thanks! Sponsored Links.

Angelfish Water Requirements: Angelfish are endemic to the Amazon basin. In nature, they are found in soft, acid water that is very warm most of the year, usually around 80° F. Don't worry if you can't match these conditions in your aquariums. The domestic angelfish, most of which are many generations removed from wild stock, are a very adaptable animal. We have experienced little or no problem raising angelfish in water between 4.7 and 8.7 pH, and from very soft all the way up to very hard water. If your water doesn't naturally fall into this range and is extremely hard or alkaline, the use of a de-ionization filter or reverse osmosis (R.O.) filter can bring it into an acceptable range for you. R.O. filters are usually hooked into your main water supply and produce the near equivalent of distilled water from the tap. The cost of a unit can range from less than a hundred dollars to over $5000, depending on the size and quality of the filter needed. Another means of altering pH is with easily obtained chemicals. This is one method that we prefer to stay away from, because with the chemical method, pH is prone to radical jumps if the water isn't properly buffered. In addition, the fish simply do not like these chemicals. Try to remember that it can be very time consuming to buffer the water, alter the pH, or adjust the hardness of your water supply. If it isn't stable after altering, the swings in pH are more stressful than simply keeping the angelfish in less than ideal water. As we said before, most angelfish varieties will do well in a large range of water types, so avoid altering the water unless all else fails. King angelfish are somewhat popular as aquarium fish, however their large size, specialized diet, and prohibitive cost make them comparatively poor captive pets. They have not bred in captivity and hence can be very difficult to find in most hobby shops, although they are slightly more available through mail order companies, for a price. King angelfish also have a well-deserved reputation for being difficult to keep, largely because they require sponges and tunicates as a food source and will often not accept even prepared foods with such things as ingredients. Besides their diet, they are not particularly picky about or , so long as they are kept stable and the water quality high. Angelfish in general are not generally good community inhabitants, king angels being no exception. If introduced when young, a lucky aquarist may be able to keep two angels in one appropriately size aquarium, but such experiences tend to be the exception, not the norm. King angelfish are quite dominant and can be abusive to smaller or more docile tankmates, or angelfish that are lower on the social hierarchy for whatever reason.
