Husbandry (Cuvier, 1831)

Pomacanthus navarchus also known as the Blue Girdled Angelfish or Majestic Angelfish is found throughout the Indo-Australian archipelago, they are most common in New Guinea and the Great Barrier Reef. Pomacanthus navarchus is commonly found in areas of heavy coral growth in deeps between 1 – 30 m.

The Blue Girdled Angelfish has yellow scales with blue margins and a dark blue band, or girdle, that covers the face and extends backward. The girdle is highlighted with neon blue margins. A mature Blue Girdled Angel reached a size in the wild between 18 – 26 cm.

While somewhat shy, Pomacanthus navarchus is one of the easier angelfish to keep once it has been successfully acclimated. They may show aggression toward other fish, particularly Angels. The Blue Girdled Angelfish is not a good reef dweller, being prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles. It generally will not harm small-polyped stony corals and somewhat noxious soft corals.
