French Angelfish (Pomacanthus paru)
The French Angelfish grows to a length of about 18 inches, maximum and is abundant in the waters off all the Cayman Islands at depths from 15 to about 80 feet. The juveniles (which have completely different coloring) are most likely to be found in the shallow water, while the adults are typically found deeper. These fish are relatively unafraid of divers and can be approached very closely.
