Koran Angelfish are found off of Queensland, Western Australia, New South Wales, and New Guinea. Also common in the Indian Ocean from South Africa, the Red Sea, and Sri Lanka eastward to Indonesia and the Western Pacific from New Caledonia, Fiji, and Samoa, northward to Japan. Very small juveniles stay in dark caverns and are never seen, but older juveniles will be found in shallow water on top of reefs.

The Koran Angelfish looks like someone outlined the body and gills in a bright, almost neon blue. The small mouth is yellow and the head can be a solid pale greyish blue or yellow to dark brownish yellow, devoid of any speckling. The mid section brightens up to a lighter yellow, speckled with dark blue scales. The colours seem to reverse as you go toward the tail, with the body being the darker colour having yellow, green or blue scales. This darker colour covers the back 3/4 of the body and into the tail fin.

Although quite calm fish the Koran Angelfish can become really aggressive towards other Angelfish and even some of their own species. They do sometimes pair up especially in locations where there is thick coral growth however tend to live their lives alone.
