Large Angelfish - opinions?

Okay, so Liveaquaria.com - comments that the Majestic Angel (or Blue Girdled Angel) are amonst the easiest of the large angels...

"While somewhat shy, this angel is one of the easier angelfish to keep."


Then, on WetWebMedia.com, they state that they are one of the most difficult to keep...

"...classified as the members of the genus Euxiphipops ("yukes-if-ih-pops"). All but one [the Blue or Yellow-Faced Angel] has an utterly dismal record of longevity in captivity"


My tank is not very mature and the addition of a majestic angel would be a little ways down the road. I'd love to add a large angel to my 110 gallon as the centerpiece of my fowlr set-up at some point.

Anyone have any experience/problems with the Majestic? Anyone have any other recommendations as far as larger angels go?

Thanks all.

You must see this fish eat. If he is eating check is color. Make sure there is no color loss. This is a fish that you do not buy online. I have a majestic and he is eating everything I put in the tank. This is a great fish, but make sure you get a healthy one. These are not cheap fish, but I was lucky enough to pick mine up at a lfs for wholesale at $50 I could not pass that up. HTH
