      Scientific Name: Chaetodontoplus melanosoma
      Common Names: Black Velvet Angelfish, Gray Poma
      Max. size: 20.0 cm TL (male/unsexed)
      Environment: reef-associated; non-migratory; marine; depth range 5 - 25 m
      Climate: tropical
      Distribution: Indo-West Pacific = Indo-Malayan region and New Guinea , northward to southern Japan.
      Morphology: Several similar species, easily confused. Juveniles are almost identical as in other species complexes in the genus. Most confusion is caused as color changes occur with growth that may match between different species at certain stages, especially the caudal fin pattern that maybe yellow in sub-adults on one and yellow in adults of others.
      Biology: An uncommon species that inhabits coastal reefs and drop-offs that are exposed to strong tidal currents. Juveniles on deep rubble slopes with rich invertebrate growth. Feeds on sponges and tunicates. Solitary or in pairs. Frequently exported through the aquarium trade.
      Aquarium Care: Provide hiding places and nonaggressive tankmates. This fish is usually not terribly aggressive, and will graze on filamentous algae and diatoms. The Black Velvet Angel may nip at Tridacnid clams, LPS, soft corals, and zoanthids.
