Photo of the Week - Chaetodontoplus duboulayi

Chaetodontoplus duboulayi or the Scribbled Angel is endemic to the Indo-Pacific. They can be found in areas associated with reefs, usually in less than 80 feet of water. They get to be about a foot long in the wild, eight to ten inches in captivity. In the wild, they naturally graze on sponges and similar benthic invertebrates. In captivity, we find them to be generally hardy, accepting a wide variety of processed foods. They are engaging and personable pets once acclimated to the aquarium environment. Shown below is a sub-adult coloration.
