Bicolor Angelfish (Centropyge bicolor)
Bicolor Angelfish are a type of dwarf or pygmy angelfish that are two colored: yellow and blue. Their faces are a bright yellow with a black marking that extends from the head to the crown. While their lower end is a deep blue that stops at the caudal tail.
It is best to keep the Bicolor Angelfish in a 70 gallon tank or larger with live rock for grazing and plenty of places to hide. These fish are not the best reef dwellers and are prone to nipping at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles.
The diet of the Bicolor Angelfish should include: high-quality angelfish preparations, spirulina, marine algae, and meaty foods such as frozen shrimp and mysis.
