Baby Genicanthus personatus angelfish is growing up fast

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jul 28, 2011 02:45 AM
One of the tiniest Genicanthus personatus angelfish was collected the summer of 2010. Not surprisingly, the incredibly rare juvenile angelfish ended up in a Japanese reef tank (a large SPS-dominated tank). Blue Harbor has just posted a new video showing the specimen nearly one year later. Compare the most recent video with the first video after the jump.

Here is a video of the Genicanthus personatus back in the summer of 2010.  Cute lil' sucker!  Read more about this specimen (along with more beautiful photos and a video) at GlassboxDesign.

And here is the new video by Blue Harbor.  It is extremely rewarding to see the specimen doing well and growing quickly.  For rare fish aficionados, look out for Bodianus sanguiness, Chaetodon daedalma, and a trio of Apolemichthys arcuatus.
