The Six-Banded Angelfish (Pomacanthus Sexstriatus) is one of only two Angelfish species commonly found in local waters, the other being the Blue-Ringed Angelfish (Pomacanthus Annularis).
Slightly Larger than its more colourful relative, the Six-Banded Angelfish grows to a maximum length of around 50cm and feeds on a diet of algae, sponges and live coral flesh occasionally.
Usually found in pairs, this species is very easy to identify due to its large size, overall yellow-ish colouration with around 6 dark vertical bars along the length of its body.
There are small blue spots on the scales and fins and the head is black with a prominent white vertical bar behind the eye.
The Six-Banded Angelfish can be found at all commonly visited locations and is reasonably easy to approach for good photograph opportunities.
At the offshore sites such as Sail Rock, Koh Phangan, they are often found slightly deeper than the Blue-Ringed Angelfish, although will venture up to depths of around 10m.
