Dwarf Angels

If you plan to keep more than one Dwarf Angel make sure your saltwater aquarium is large enough. You see Dwarfs usually do not mix well together unless the aquarium is large enough for each to have their own good size territory. We recommend at least 125 gallons. You don't really want any chance of fighting. If you are planning on maintaining more than one small angelfish, vary the sizes of the Dwarfs and add the angel fish all at the same time. This helps prevent one angel from developing too large a territory before the other Dwarf Angels.

As with most species of saltwater fish, sexual differences are not distinguishable. Dwarf Angels are what is called hermaphroditic, which means if more than one of the species is together in one tank, one of the fish will become the Male and the rest of the group will all be females. Though breeding saltwater dwarf angelfish is difficult, as of July 2018 there have been success in breeding 10 species of the smaller angelfish so far. The most popular are the Bicolor, Cherub Pygmy, Coral Beauty, and Flame Angel. Time will most likely show success with many other species.
