      Scientific Name: Pomacanthus paru
      Max. size: 41.1 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; non-migratory; marine ; depth range 3 - 100 m
      Climate: subtropical
      Distribution: Western Atlantic = Florida, USA and Bahamas to Brazil. Also Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean, including Antilles. Eastern Atlantic = off Ascension Island and St. Paul's Rocks.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 29-31; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 22-24. Black, the scales of the body, except those at front from nape to abdomen, rimmed with golden yellow; a broad orange-yellow bar at pectoral absent; dorsal filament yellow; chin whitish; outer part of iris yellow; eye narrowly rimmed below with blue
      Biology: Common in shallow reefs. Usually in pairs, often near sea fans. Feed on sponges, algae, bryozoans, zoantharians, gorgonians and tunicates. Spawning pairs are strongly territorial, with usually both members vigorously defending their areas against neighboring pairs. Juveniles tend cleaning stations where they service a broad range of clients, including jacks, snappers, morays, grunts, surgeonfishes, and wrasses. At the station the cleaner displays a fluttering swimming and when cleaning it touches the clients with its pelvic fins. Has been reared in captivity.
      Aquarium Care: A pretty hardy fish for larger aquariums. Smaller juveniles sometimes will not take to captivity. The adults become large and will act agressively.
