QUESTION: So you do know what other fish it competes with and how it is a invasive species

Answer
Hi again Alexandria.
I checked an invasive species list and the only species of Pomacanthus that is listed as invasive is the Arabian angelfish. What is your source of information?
As to competition almost any large omnivore would compete with it. It could have an edge because of it's size of up to 15 in
