Coral Beauty Angelfish (Centropyge bispinosa)
The Coral Beauty Angelfish, otherwise known as the Dusky Angelfish or the Two-spined Angelfish, are royal blue in body with orange-red and yellow scales. Their dorsal, caudal, and anal fins are lined with bright blue, and their pelvic fins are a bright orange.
It is best to house these angels in a 70 gallon tank or larger with live rock for grazing and multiple places for hiding. The Coral Beauty Angelfish are not the best reef dwellers and are prone to nipping at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles, so keep in mind if you have a reef aquarium.
The diet of the Coral Beauty Angelfish include: high-quality angelfish preparations, marine algae, spirulina, and meaty foods such as mysis or frozen shrimp.
