    They look pretty sweet in your tank. Here is something I googled on them.

    Identification:
    This is one of a few Angelfishes that can easily be identified by sex as male or female, because of their differences in appearance. The male is marked with rather thin, dark vertical bands the length of the body from the head to where the dorsal and anal fins end, followed by a yellow banded area at the base of the tail.

    Characteristics and Compatibility:
    A very active Angelfish that is constantly on the move, and therefore requires plenty of room to swim around. Often a difficult shipper, but if a healthy specimen is obtained, it settles into aquarium life rather quickly. Males will fight with same as well as other Genicanthus genus males, especially ones similar in coloration. Can be kept singly, as a pair, or a small group of females can be housed with one male in larger aquariums. Not an overly aggressive, but may chase after small, peaceful planktivores. Typically gets along with other fish species, which includes most all other Angels.

    Diet and Feeding:
    An omnivore, and planktivore that naturally browses on diatom and filamentous algae. This is a fish that constantly grazes and searches for food. If an ample growth of algae is not present in the aquarium to browse on, this fish should be fed a steady and varied diet of the usual Angelfish fares, especially containing Spirulina.

    Reef Compatible: Yes. One of a few Angelfish species that poses no threat to soft or stony corals and other sessile invertebrates.
