The Multibarred Angelfish is also known as the Many Banded Angelfish and Banded Multifasciatus Angel. It has individual black and yellow vertical bands arranged in an "every other" fashion, with a thin stipe of white bordering each black band. The tail is white to yellow with small black speckles. A juvenile can be distinguished by a blue eyespot at the back of the dorsal fin.
The Multibarred Angelfish requires a minimum tank size of 30 gallons with plenty of hiding places and live rock for grazing. This angelfish is best kept as the only species member in a tank. Not a good reef dweller, the Many Banded Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles.
The Multibarred Angelfish can be a finicky eater; it prefers a variety of small meaty items, angelfish and herbivore preparations, and live sponges. These eating habits and the trait of becoming somewhat territorial upon acclimatization, make this a challenging fish to keep.
