Holacanthus clarionensis, also known as the clarion angelfish, is a species of marine angelfish of the family Pomacanthidae found predominantly off the Pacific coast of Mexico,[1] living in depths from 3 to 30 meters deep.[2] This fish is popular in aquarium trade due to its colors and high price tag. This species can grow up to 20 cm in length.[3] It is considered vulnerable, due to its distribution being restricted.[2]
