Husbandry

Whitley, 1959

Very special thanks for the first photo of this rare anglefish to Vicki Hoare from Australia.

The Ballina Angelfish is a protected species that is only known from northern coastal New South Wales and Balls Pyramid, near Lord Howe Island, New South Wales.
The Ballina Angelfish can be recognised by its distinctive colouration. It is pearly grey to whitish with a broad region of black covering much of the back and pectoral fin base. There are black areas through the mouth and eye. The pectoral and caudal fins are yellow.

Chaetodontoplus ballinae is listed as Least Concern, as although the species has a limited range, there is no collection for the aquarium trade, most populations are within well-managed protected areas, it is a deepwater species with no habitat degradation expected, and consequently there appear to be no major threats.

No collection for the aquarium trade!
