Angels are among the most colorful and popular of marine fishes.
The Armitage Angelfish (Apolemichthys armitage) is actually a hybrid of the Flagfin Angelfish (A. trimaculatus) and the Cream Angelfish (A. xanthurus). This is an extremely rare fish and is among the most elusive of angelfish to this day. It can be found in rocky outcroppings and reef slopes in the Indo-Pacific ocean, where juveniles hide among rock and coral. It feeds on a variety of foods, including shrimp, algae and occasionally sponges. Just like other large angelfish Armitage angels should be kept in a spacious aquarium with similarly sized fish. It is not recommended for reef tanks, especially with soft corals.
