    The body of this fish is deep and compressed. This species has spectacular colouring both as juveniles and as adults. As juveniles of 3 inches or lesser sizes, the fish is dark coloured with brilliant white and blue stripes running vertically on the body. The stripes become semi-circular at the base of the body lending the epithet "Semicircle angel" to this fish. As the fish grows the bands fade out.
