Moorsh Idol (Zanclus Cornutus) is one of our more popular reef fish...

People are always saying they saw a pretty angelfish while snorkeling or diving. The fish they're probably talking about (pictured) is more closely related to a surgeon/tang, and similar to butterflyfish. The angelfish we do have here is nothing like the typical freshwater angelfish you find at the aquarium store.... But then again, who's in charge of classifying these fish anyway? They're probably wrong.... how come saltwater angelfish look nothing like freshwater angelfish?
