Angelfish (Holacanthus ciliaris), Cozumel, Mexico, Caribbean, North America
Marine angelfish are perciform fish of the family Pomacanthidae. They are found on shallow reefs in the tropical Atlantic, Indian, and mostly western Pacific oceans. The family contains seven genera and approximately 86 species. They should not be confused with the freshwater angelfish, tropical cichlids of the Amazon Basin.
With their bright colours and deep, laterally compressed bodies, marine angelfishes are some of the more conspicuous residents of the reef.
