The Bandit Angelfish (Apolemichthys arcuatus) is an Incredibly beautiful species. The name stems from the vibrant pearly white and deep black colouration of the horizontal banding. The species is endemic to the Hawaiian archipelago, including a hotspot located around the Johnson’s Atoll and can be found at depths up to 600ft making them a rare sight in the hobby. Bandit Angels can be a more difficult species to keep in an aquarium due to their natural diet, but in captivity, readily accept prepared frozen foods such as Gamma Mysis and enriched brine shrimp. If well fed on their preferred diet, they can be considered reef safe with caution!
Although this species is more suitable for the experienced fish keeper, they have great personalities and you will find very few fish that can match this fish in the aquarium.
