Arusetta asfur adulte

Arabian angelfish

Pomacanthus asfur

This angel fish lives in the reefs. It is fairly territorial and a loner. Its diet mainly consists in molluscs, shrimp and plankton.

It can be distinguished from P. maculosus which is a lighter, drabber colour.

Unlike other species of angelfish, the young of this species have the same appearance as the adults.
