      Scientific Name: Genicanthus watanabei
      Max. size: 15.0 cm TL (male/unsexed), ~6 inches
      Environment: reef-associated; non-migratory; marine; depth range 21 - 81 m
      Climate: tropical
      Distribution: Western Central Pacific = Ryukyu Islands, south to New Caledonia and the Great Barrier Reef; including Cook Islands, Tuamoto Archipelago, and Pitcairn.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 15-16; Dorsal soft rays (total): 15-16; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 14-17. Males light blue with 8 black stripes on the lower 2/3 of the body (the posterior end of the uppermost yellow, the lowermost stripes extending the adjacent anal fin); females light blue with a vertical black bar above the eye and spots on the forehead; both sexes with a broad submarginal band on the dorsal and anal fins; females with broad submarginal band on the caudal-fin lobes.
      Biology: Occurs in current-swept outer reef slopes and drop-offs. Feeds on plankton. Forms harems of 2-5 individuals. Occasionally exported through the aquarium trade.
      Aquarium Care: Will not bother reef invertebrates. Adjusts better to a deep water reef tank, or a tank that is dimly lit. Most Watanabe's suffer from swim bladder damage, however, a healthy specimen can be kept in a peaceful tank. If more than one is to be kept, then a male - female pair is recommended (2 males will fight).
