I would love to hear from people who have had long term success with Genicanthus semifasciatus (masked swallowtail angel) their tank temperature. My 195 gallon runs 78-79 which I am afraid might be a bit too warm for these beautiful fish.

great fish but your tank is prob at least 10 degrees too high.. they tend to dive deep when temps fall below 68f.. they prefer temperate zone over tropical zone...

My tank runs the exact same temperature range as yours does and I've had my G. semifasciatus trio in it for well over two years now.

I have had them in temperate reefs for years. My Watnanbei are from the same depths and I have had them for a decade.

Thanks for the info. What temperatures have you run your temperate reefs at?
