Potters Angelfish Description:
The potters angelfish is a notoriously poor shipper. If the fish survives shipment and is placed in an established reef tank then it is a fairly hardy species.
The potters angelfish is found at depths greater than a typical reef fish. Adults are found as far as 150 feet below the surface and juveniles are found about 15 feet below the surface. Like other members of this genus it is solitary and stays close to shelter. They generally dart from crevice to crevice exposing themselves for only brief periods of time.
Tank Mate Compatibility:
The Potters Angelfish is typically a good community fish. Do not place with more aggressive fishes.
Potters Angelfish Breeding & Spawning:
No known way to breed in captivity.
Determining Potters Angelfish Sex:
As with other dwarf angels they are synchronous protogynic hermaphrodites.
