Husbandry

Goode, 1876

Holacanthus bermudensis also known as the Blue Angelfish or Corn Sugar is found in the Gulf of Mexico, Florida, quite rare in Bermuda and the Bahamas. Inhabit shallow waters to depths up to 60 meters.

The Blue Angelfish is very similar to the Queen angelfish, Holacanthus ciliaris, they differ primarily in color pattern. Juveniles are dark blue with a yellow tail, a yellow area around the pectoral fins, and brilliant blue vertical bars on the body. The adult Blue Angelfish has a greenish-blue body and tail. The tail has yellow rear edge, while in the closely related queen angelfish (Holacanthus ciliaris) has an all yellow tail. Holacanthus bermudens is hermaphroditic but there are no distinguishing markings that differentiate males from females.

In the wild the Blue Angelfish eats mainly sponges with small amounts of algae, tunicates, and corals. Holacanthus bermudensis survives in captivity mainly on sponges so make sure you can get the right food with sponge in it.

Holacanthus bermudensis is best kept as the only angelfish in the tank. Not a good reef dweller, may eat some soft corals and nip at large Polyped stony corals, zooanthids and clams. Smaller specimens are les.

Ich halte diesen Kaiser nun seit ungefähr 2 Jahren und habe keinerlei Probleme mit ihm.
Momentan schwimmt er in einem 600L Becken, was aber bald vergrößert wird. Dieser Fisch schwimmt viel und gerne umher, benötigt aber auch Höhlen zum Verstecken.
Beim Futter ist er nicht wählerisch und auch die Korallen werden von ihm in Ruhe gelassen.
Ich kann daher nicht verstehen, warum dieser Fisch so schwierig zu halten sein soll. Natürlich muss an seine Körpergröße gedacht werden, aber wenn man ein großes Becken besitzt und ein gut eingelaufen Becken hat, ist dieser Fisch definitiv ein Augenfang.
