Scribbled Angelfish (Chaetodontoplus duboulayi)


The Scribbled Angelfish or Chaetodontoplus duboulayi is a beautiful saltwater fish that is found in the Pacific Ocean in and around reefs.  This species of Angelfish can grow to about 8-1/2" (220mm) in length and is a fairly popular aquarium fish.  Scribbled Angelfish get their name from the dark blue scribbles that cover the majority of their bodies.  A dark bar runs across their eyes and their mouths are yellow.  They also can be identified by the vertical yellow bar behind their gills and a yellow horizontal stripe that runs across the top of their bodies.

Scribbled Angelfish are omnivorous grazers that will feed on crustaceans, algae, coral polyps and a variety of foods.  They are from the Pomacanthidae family of saltwater fishes are are sometimes referred to as Duboulay's Angelfish.  These fish require a large aquarium with plenty of hiding spaces.  They are considered to be fairly shy at first, but once they grow accustom to their new environment they will be quite active and can even learn to feed right out of the owner's hand!  You can check out the Scribbled Angelfish in an aquarium in the video below.
