The beautiful Asfur Angel is known as one of the easier Angels to care for providing that its basic requirements are met. Often confused with the Yellowbar Angelfish, one of the most noticeable differentiators is the bright yellow tail of the Asfur Angel. This species of Pomacanthus can grow up to 16 inches. A 250 gallon mature tank is necessary for long term health. Along with stable water parameters the Asfur Angel requires live rock for shelter and grazing. Although this species isn’t particularly aggressive extreme caution is a must if combining large Angel’s and only in a system of at least 400 gallons.

One important aspect of feeding is their dietary requirements. Asfur Angel’s eat Sponge and Tunicates in the wild and most specimens will not thrive without either a natural supply in the aquarium or especially made Angel preparations. Seaweed given at least three times per week is also another requirement for optimal health.
Due to their size they also need above average protein skimming as well as a heavy current in some areas of the tank.
