Wikipedia Abstract

The sixbar angelfish (Pomacanthus sexstriatus), also known as the six banded angelfish, is a marine angelfish, with an easily recognisable yellow body with black vertical stripes (usually six on each side, hence 'sixbar'), one white vertical stripe on each side of its black head, fluorescent blue spots on the body, fins and tail and fluorescent blue lines on the top and bottom fin and tail. They are common in South Pacific reefs, most commonly the Great Barrier Reef of Australia's north-east coast. The sixbar angelfish can grow to a maximum size of 46 cm in the ocean, though only around 30 cm in captivity.
