More easily kept than some other angelfish, the Lamarck's Angelfish requires a well-maintained tank of at least 125 gallons. They may chase small, docile planktivores such as Anthias, Fairy Wrasses, Flasher Wrasses, and Fire Gobies but will usually ignore other fish, including other Angels. Only one male Lamarck's Angelfish should be kept per tank. Fish of the genus Genicanthus are the only zooplanktivores among the angelfish.
The diet should consist of Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, and mysis or frozen shrimp.
