The Yellow Angelfish, also known as the False Lemonpeel Angelfish, is a species endemic to the Cook Islands. With its bright yellow hue and lack of blue markings around the eyes and fins, it has a striking resemblance to the Lemonpeel Angelfish. This species is a popular choice among aquarists due to its vibrant colouring and hardy nature. Further, its small size makes it an ideal choice for smaller tanks. With the right care and environment, these fish can live up to 10 years.

The Yellow Angelfish is a beautiful addition to any aquarium. It requires a 70 gallon or larger tank with plenty of hiding places and live rock for grazing. This species may also nip at large-polyped stony corals, some soft coral polyps, and clam mantles, so it is important to research any coral you plan to add to the tank before introducing the fish. To maintain its vibrant coloration and overall health, a balanced diet of frozen and live foods should be included in its diet. Additionally, regular water changes should be performed to ensure the water quality is adequate.

The diet of the Yellow Angelfish should include high-quality angelfish preparations, marine algae, Spirulina, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items.
