Maculosus Angelfish or Halfmoon Angelfish



Maculosus Angelfish (Pomacanthus Maculosus) is a marine Angelfish with common names including Halfmoon Angelfish, Yellowband Angelfish, Yellowbar Angelfish, Yellow-Blotch Angelfish, and Yellow-Marked Angelfish. The species lives mainly in coral and rocky areas, in shallow to moderate depths, though it is more often in silty reef areas than in rich coral growth.

The Maculosus Angelfish or Halfmoon Angelfish grows to a size of 19.7″ inches in length. It is very similar in appearance to the Asfur Angelfish, which is found in overlapping habitats in the Persian Gulf and Red Sea. The Maculosus Angelfish or Halfmoon Angelfish can be distinguished from the Asfur primarily by its tail color, which is pale to clear, while the Asfur’s tail is bright yellow. As with other large Angelfish in genus Pomacanthus, juveniles and sub-adults are differently marked and colored than adults. Small Maculosus Angelfish or Halfmoon Angelfish are alternately blue, white, and black banded.
