Cortez angelfish

Pomacanthus zonipectus

Cortez angelfish

Distribution: eastern Pacific Ocean, from the California to Peru. Very common along Costa Rica‘s Pacific coast.

As most of angelfish species, Pomacanthus zonipectus go through dramatic color changes with growth, and the juveniles are very different from the adults.
