Queen Angelfish are protected by law as they are grazers that keep our reef free of algae that can smother the coral. The queen angelfish is one of the most iconic, brightly colored species on coral reefs in Belize. It is typically bright yellow, green, and blue, and it gets its name from the coloration on its head that gives the impression that it is wearing a crown.
Fortunately, this species is not at risk of extinction and is generally considered a species of least concern.
