Lamarcks' Angelfish/Genicanthus lamarck
 
This Lamarck is getting cleaned of parasites by the cleaner wrasse in the photo. The Lamarck is not a spectacular beauty but it is an interesting fish and is hardy for an angelfish. They are somewhat shy so provide them with plenty of caves and hiding places.

Maintenance difficulty:
This fish is fairly easy to keep. About the same as most angels it seems to do well if given enough variety in its diet.

Maintenance:
It is important that you feed angelfish all kinds of live, frozen, and prepared formula foods. Best to feed small amounts several times a day. A good formula that can be made at home consists of mussels, shrimp, squid, and spinach.

Habitat: Natural geographic location:
This is something of a rare fish ranging from the Solomon Islands and New Hebrides northward to Japan.

Natural Foods:
Eats plankton in midwaters.

Social Behaviors:
Found in medium to large groups that feed in waters well above the bottom.

Sexual differences:
One of the few angelfish that display sexual dimorphism. The male has a yellow spot on its forehead and longer more pointed caudal fin. The male and female have often been described as different species because of these differences.

Light: Recommended light levels:
No special requirements.

Breeding/Reproduction
Not accomplished in captivity. See Breeding Marine Fish page for a general description of how angelfish reproduce in the wild.

Temperature:
No special requirements. Normal temperatures for marine fish lies between 75 and 79 degrees.

Length/Diameter of fish:
Adults can grow to 23 cm (9 inches).

Minimum Tank Length/Size:
A minimum 50 gallon aquarium is recommended.

Water Movement: Weak, Moderate, Strong
No special requirements.

Water Region: Top, Middle, Bottom
Likes to hang out in the rockwork until feeding time!

This fish is generally readily available and is inexpensive.
