VALENTINE’S WEDNESDAY

VALENTINE’S WEDNESDAY!

We hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s Day! We sure did! Edmond gave Ellie a lovely package of sweet potatoes and Ellie gave him a big bucket of apples J! We’re still continuing our Valentine’s theme week and since it would normally be Watery Wednesday, we’re diving into the Atlantic Ocean to find a special fish! Who has on their floaties?

MEET THE FRENCH ANGELFISH!

    Range/Habitat: Atlantic Ocean-Gulf of Mexico/ shallow reefs

    Diet: Omnivore: sponges, algae

    Length: 16-24”

    Conservation Status: Common

 

 

 

Fun Facts:

  • French Angelfish are monogamous fish.
  • Pairs of French angelfish are very territorial.
  • As juveniles they hang out at cleaning stations and clean larger fish.
  • French angelfish have small comb like teeth.
  • Juveniles look different than adults; they have broad stripes.

 

French Angelfish are beautiful! They are known to be very curious and will often come near scuba divers! Just wave back if you see them J!
