Blam! We bet you didn’t expect us to broadside you with a fresh new picture of the impossibly rare tiger angelfish, did ya? Apolemichthys kingi is a South African endemic angelfish and this studly tiger is still in that country where he legally belongs.
this photo was taken a few days after being introduced into his new South African aquarium home so it’ll be a while still before it is completely adapted and conditioned for captive living, or ready for photo and video primetime. We know that Frank Baensch hasn’t worked much with Apolemichthys species save for the bandit angelfish, but the tiger angelfish is one we’d vote to the top of the Reef Culture Technologies breeding list.
