Coral Beauty Angelfish
Scientific Name: Centropyge bispinosa
Reef Compatibility: Yes
Minimum Tank Size: 55 gal
Max Size: 4”
Notes: The Coral Beauty Angelfish, also called the Twospine Angelfish and Dusky Angelfish, is usually fairly peaceful but can be belligerent with tank mates. Unless you have a very large tank, they will fight with other dwarf angels over territory. They may also be aggressive with smaller tank mates (fish and invertebrates) if kept in a smaller tank. Provide them with lots of live rock for hiding places and they may spend most of their time out in the open.
Feeding the Coral Beauty Angelfish can be difficult and it's usually hit or miss with this species. Some hobbyists have no problems getting them to eat flake and frozen foods whereas others report that they can't get them to eat standard aquarium foods. Either way, having a good amount of live rock in your tank will provide them with not only places for hiding but it will also give them a food source. They primarily eat algae and will graze on the algae growing on your live rock. For those reef aquarium keepers out there, this fish may not be the best choice for your reef tank. They have been known to nip at lps corals.
