Young with deep blue to black body and bright blue fins, except for yellow tail. Skinny electric blue and cobalt bars throughout. Broad yellow bar appears mid-body with age, body turns deep blue/purple, and yellow tail brightens. Small captive-bred young may sometimes be available, but their adult size of 17″ makes the Asfur Angelfish unsuitable for the hobby.
