Pomacanthus rhomboides also known as the Old woman angelfish inhabit mid water to surface areas where adults form groups, with juveniles found in tidepools. The seas of western Indian Ocean from Delagoa Bay (Mozambique) to Knysna (South Africa) are home to the Old woman angelfish.
Pomacanthus rhomboides is known to feed on microscopic plankton as well as algae in the wild. Not much else is known about this species and doubt it's even available for the aquarium trade.
