Dwarf Angelfish

Angelfish are magnificent fish, among the most colorful and most popular of all marine fish. Keeping a large angels require a big commitment in aquarium size, which many can not do. Saltwater Dwarf Angelfish have a huge advantage. They are just as nice but in a small more compact size. They can easily be kept in smaller home aquariums. Long-lived the Dwarf Sized Angels make a fine addition to many marine tanks. For a smaller dwarf like the Centropyge argi pygmy angel, an aquarium of just 30 gallons is sufficient. The larger Dwarf species such as the Bicolor Angel (Centropyge bicolor), Flame Angel (Centropyge loricula), Lemonpeel (Centropyge flavissimus), Potters Angel (Centropyge potteri) and many others need an aquarium of at least 70 gallons.

Marine Dwarf Angels belong to the Pomacanthidae family. The majority are classified in the genus Centropyge, and a few in the genus Paracentropyge. Most in the group reach a size of 3 to four inches in an aquarium. Found throughout the world, most commonly associated with coral reefs. They inhabit lagoons, reef slopes, drop offs, rocky areas, rubble areas, and areas of rich coral formations. Most are found in pairs, but a few species are solitary and territorial.

Dwarf Angels usually do not mix well together in the average home aquarium unless the tank is larger than 90 gallons but we suggest at least 120 gallons. You don't really want any chance of fighting. If you are planning on maintaining more than one, vary the sizes of the fish and add the Angelfish all at the same time. This will help prevent one from developing too large a territory before the others are added and becoming overly aggressive. Caution should be taken when adding more than one, they need to be put in together into a large enough system.

As with most species of saltwater fish, sexual differences are not distinguishable. They are what is called hermaphroditic, which means if more than one of the species is together, one of the fish will become a Male and the rest of the group will all be females. Though breeding is extremely difficult, there has been success in breeding Flame Angels. Time will most likely show success with other species.

In the wild, their diet consists mainly of algae and tunicates. They require plenty of live rock for picking off of and they should be given a balanced diet. Therefore introduced into a well-established aquarium with an ample supply of algae and other live rock growth presents the best opportunity for a long life. The majority adapt well to life in a display tank. Variety is important. Feed foods from a wide range of food groups. Feeding a single type of food for too long is generally a bad idea. By providing this type of habitat it stimulates Angels feeding instincts, which in turn helps them adjust to accepting tank fed aquarium foods such as Spirulina, nori and other dried or frozen preparations for herbivores, vitamin-enriched and color enhanced marine flakes, live brine or mysid shrimps, finely chopped dried or frozen crustacean or other high-quality meaty fares suitable for carnivores. They also need to be fed algae and nori sheets as well as a good pellet food. Foods that are not already vitamin-enriched can be soaked in a liquid vitamin supplement such as Selcon. This helps prevent Dwarf Angelfish disorders such as head and lateral line erosion (HLLE).

Special Note: When you see "Aquarium Conditioned" on one of our featured saltwater angelfish, it means the Dwarf Angel's we offer have gone through our Conditioning Process which is from 15 days to 30 days long, depending on species. During this time the arriving ocean fresh fish first go through Quarantine, then go into our aquarium life systems. In our aquarium life systems they will get used to aquarium life and we work on getting them to eat well through a special process we use to change ocean fresh saltwater fish over to our aquarium conditioned fish. The process includes enough time to let us have confidence sending marine fish to you knowing they will do well in proper aquarium conditions and they will also eat well, which are the two most important factors if you expect a long life Angelfish.

The Bicolor angelfish can be kept successfully in reef type aquaria, but usually do not survive in fish-only aquariums. This is commonly due to specialized diet requirements that reef aquaria provide, in the way of naturally occurring micro-crustacean populations, but in some cases, may simply be due to the more complete natural ecosystem found in reef tanks.
Food and diet:In a saltwater aquarium they should be given a balanced diet. Variety is important, feed them foods from a wide range of food groups. Feeding them a single type of food for too long is generally a bad idea. They should be fed frozen foods that have both meat and algae (Formula One, Formula Two, Ocean Nutrition Pygmy Angel Formula are all good examples, algae and nori sheets as well as a pellet from a reputable brand like Spectrum.

Indonesia
Picture of Midnight Angel
Identification: The Black Nox also called Midnight Angelfish has the typical shape for dwarf angels. My favorite thing about this particular dwarf is the color. Completely black, there arent many fish that can compete with the look of this dwarf angel.
These angels can grow up to almost 4" (10 cm) in length. They can live 10 -15 years or more in nature, though in the aquarium they live an average of about 10 years.. This dwarf angel is pretty slick, with a jet black body it looks almost like a shadow swimming through the tank. These are pretty average in size, getting to about 4 inches in my experience. As with all dwarf angels, they arent always compatible with coral.

Recommended Tank size: Provide a 75 gallon or larger tank. Like all mini angels provide live rock with holes and caves for hiding and grazing. To do well, the Black Nox angelfish needs to be kept in a live rocked aquaria.

Bellus Angelfish
Genicanthus melanospilos
Picture of Bellus Angel Female Picture of Bellus Angel Male
This Angelfish is considered Reef Safe
Description: Genicanthus bellus is an angelfish that occasionally makes its way into the aquarium trade. Its common names are the Bellus Angelfish and Orante Angelfish. They are a mid sized angelfish reaching a maximum of 7 inches at adulthood. Genicanthus Bellus are sexually dimorphic, meaning the appearance between males and females is discemible. The females will be blue, black, and white to gray in coloration with horizontal black,white, and blue stripes along the body which shift to vertical striping near the head. The males will be predominantlty white and gray with a bright yellow stripe running horizontally across the body. Males will often also have a yellow stripe that runs along the base of the dorsal fin. Both males and females will have a tail that tapers into the body, giving them the "swallowtail" appearance. The Bellus Angelfish are hermaphroditic which means they have the ability to change sex from female to male and from male to female. This takes place even in the aquarium if the tank is lacking either a male or a female.
Recommended Tank : At a minimum they should be kept in a 70 gallon tanj for a single specimen; with a tank size of 125 gallons or more, for a pair. They can also be kept in a small Harem with one Male and a few Females if you would like. They are peaceful aquarium inhabitants and will rarely bother any tank mates. The one exception is when kept with other Angelfish of the Genicanthus genus. Also no more than one male should be kept in a system. A single male can be maintained with multiple females though.
Food and diet: The Bellus Angelfish is an omnivore, eating mostly zooplankton and marine vegetation, specifically algae in the wild. In captivity, they will also accept frozen and meaty foods such as brine shrimp, mysis shrimp and shell fish. They also eat many greens particularly the dried green algae sheets in the home aquarium. A good frozen marine angelfish preperation are perfect for the Bellus Angel but we suggest you vary the daily diet with a few different frozen foods to provide the best possible nutrition.
Level of Care: Moderate
Acclimaton Time: 3+ hours
Reef Compatibility: They are reef-safe, and can be kept with any invertebrates. Possible tankmates include clownfish, blennies, gobies, Chromis, butterflyfish, and small lionfish and eels.

Lamarck's Angelfish
Genicanthus lamarck
Picture of Lamarck Angel
This Angelfish is considered Reef Safe
Description: One of the easier to keep angelfish, the Lamarck's Angelfish is also called the Blackstriped Angelfish and Freckletail Lyretail angelfish. Its range stretches from the Indo-Malayan waters, eastwards to Vanuatu, northwards up to southern Japan, and southwards down to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia. Both Male and Female are silver/grey with Black horizontal stripes. What makes this fish attractive to me is the way their body picks up the actinic lighting and gives it a silver/blue appearance. This provides a nice contrast to the other colors in a reef tank. Lamarck's angelfish are found in shallow reef crests and deep reefs adjacent to steep slopes. It lives in harems consisting of 3-7 fish. It feeds on plankton along corral reefs. The male is larger with blackish pelvic fins and a yellow spot on the front head , whereas the smaller female has brighter (white) pelvic fins. Unlike many other angelfish species, Lamarck's angelfish is known to leave other angels alone in the aquarium. This species can be kept in pairs as well as in groups, but keeping more than one male Lamarck's angelfish is not a good idea unless you have a very large and cleverly decorated aquarium.
Recommended Tank : At a minimum they should be kept in a 70 gallon tanj for a single specimen; with a tank size of 125 gallons or more, for a pair. They can also be kept in a small Harem with one Male and a few Females if you would like. They are peaceful aquarium inhabitants and will rarely bother any tank mates. The one exception is when kept with other Angelfish of the Genicanthus genus. Also no more than one male should be kept in a system. A single male can be maintained with multiple females though.
