Pygoplites diacanthus. The juvenile is quite pretty with it being an overall orange with several vertical white bands edged in black and that begin on the face and end at the peduncle. Its dorsal fin is orange, yet its anal fin is yellow, as are its pelvic fins. It also has a large black ‘eye’ spot edged in white on the rear upper body that somewhat extends into the lower dorsal fin. As for the adult, it has an overall yellowish orange body with several vertical white bands that are edged in black, with its anal fin yellow and filled with blue stripes. Its tail is yellow and the dorsal is blue and edged in bright blue. Those from the Indian Ocean have a yellow breast, with those from Indo-Pacific areas having a blue grey breast. Simply an amazing combination of colors and no doubt one of the most colorful of all angelfish!
