Nice. Just make sure you have a big tank as they can become territorial when they have settled in

I believe they are hard to keep fish, so make sure he is eating and perfectly healthy before getting him. My friend just ordered one locally and it started out fine at the fish place but within 2 weeks time while she waited for it to be ok to take home it died at the fish place. My friend would have been out $80 and lost a beautiful fish all at one time.

You might wanna read up a bit on this guy before taking the plunge. Just my 2 cents

I can tell you it definitely is not a Queen, Imperator, Koran, Majestic or Blueface.
It has many features of a juv. Annularis BUT it has (according to the pics) a white tail which is not a common trait of a juv. Annularis. While the front body does seem to show some brown undercolor, (another sign of an Annullaris) the white tail can be a hint that it is a juv. Maculosus. (There is a great photo outlay of juv. Angels in the book "Butterfly and Angelfishes, volume 2" by Gerald R. Allen, pages 312-313 to support this. ) The real identifier will be the source of the fish. If it came from the Indian ocean or indo pacific, it's an Annularis. If it came from or near the Red Sea, you may have yourself a pre gold stripe juv. Mac. The source is the answer

Hope this helps

I agree with Andy Sager. When I first saw it I thought it was most likely P. maculosus ... a species I have collected in large numbers in the Persian Gulf.
