Potter’s angelfish have a unique pattern, with a deep orange on its front and dorsal region which shades to a grayish-blueish side. Its posterior has vertical lines of blue and black. Potter’s angelfish are endemic to Hawaii and are the most common type of angelfish seen in the Hawaiian Islands. Usually spotted alone, snorkelers usually catch glimpses of Potter’s angelfish in clear waters of at least 15 feet feeding on algae. Reaching only 5 inches in length, this species does well in aquarium environments.
