King Angelfish

The king angelfish is a non-migratory tropical fish in the eastern Pacific Ocean from the coast of Peru north to the Gulf of California, including offshore islands as far west as the Galapagos Islands. It is a popular aquarium fish (presumably commercial, not household as it takes 240 gallons of water just to house one) because of its large size and bright colors,  but is difficult to keep because it does not breed in captivity, is aggressive and has a specialty diet which is expensive to maintain.

  1. It was fun to see whole schools of these. They look like something out of Finding Nemo.
