Coral Beauty Angelfish
Coral Beauty Angelfish are also known as the Twospined or Dusky Angelfish,and range from the Central and South Pacific, to the Western Pacific Ocean, and throughout the Indian Ocean. The body and head are a deep royal blue, highlighted with an iridescent orange to yellow.
The Coral Beauty Angelfish are one of the easiest angels to care for and have a unique advantage over wild-harvested species. They are hardier and more accustomed to conditions found in home aquariums. Therefore, it makes an excellent choice for novices and seasoned aquarists alike.
It requires a 70 gallon or larger tank with lots of hiding places and rock for grazing. Not a good reef dweller, the Coral Beauty Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates).
The diet of the Coral Beauty Angelfish should consist of Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other quality meaty foods.
