The Flagfin Angel, also known as the Fivestripe Angelfish, is a beautiful and colorful fish that can add a stunning visual appeal to any saltwater aquarium.

This species is characterized by its deep blue body with striking yellow stripes, and a bright yellow tail fin. They are native to the Western Pacific Ocean and can grow up to 10 inches in length.

Caring for the Flagfin Angel requires a well-maintained aquarium with plenty of hiding spots and swimming space. They prefer a temperature range of 72-78°F and a pH between 8.1-8.4. It is important to provide them with a varied diet that includes both meaty and plant-based foods such as frozen or live brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, spirulina, and algae.

The Flagfin Angel is generally peaceful, but may become territorial towards other angelfish or similarly shaped fish. Therefore, it is best to keep only one in a tank. They are compatible with most other peaceful fish, such as clownfish, gobies, and tangs.

In terms of behavior, the Flagfin Angel is generally active and curious. They may nip at corals or invertebrates, so it is important to monitor their behavior and ensure that they are not causing any harm. They are known to be hardy and adaptable to different environments, but may become shy or reclusive if they do not have enough hiding spots in their tank.

The lifespan of the Flagfin Angel can range from 5-10 years, depending on their living conditions and care. With proper care and attention, they can be a beautiful and captivating addition to any saltwater aquarium.
