Unique beauty in maturity
Young Korans are confused with a few different kinds of fish, including young emperor angelfish. The young bodies are dark blue and light blue with white semi-circles. Between 3 to 6 inches, young Korans change into adults. Adult Koran angelfish have a distinct look that is hard to confuse with others. They have blue heads and blue spots on every green scale. Because of their appearance as youth, this fish is also called the semicircle angelfish.
A little shallow
Koran angelfish have many predators. Most of these fish hardly survive 17 days. Those who do survive live in protected, shallow caves or near reefs. Adults also stay in fairly shallow waters, only up to 98 feet (30 meters) deep. They stay near dense coral to hide in when they feel threatened.
Koran angelfish prefer to be alone. Sometimes, they can be found with one other Koran fish, but they can act aggressively toward smaller fish and slower sea animals.
In the wild, Koran Angelfish eat both plants and other animals. Because they live close to coral reefs, they eat a variety of sponges, tunicates, algae, and other reef-dwelling animals.
Koran angelfish are least concern.
No effort is too small!
