The Flame Angelfish is the most gorgeous dwarf angelfish for a saltwater aquarium. With its beautifully composed color combination, Flame Angelfish draws attention to any aquarium. They feature black eyes and orangish to red color with strong contrasting black vertical lines, topped with deep electric blue accents at the back edge of the dorsal and anal fin, which gives an appearance of burning flames. The Flame Angelfish is a very good fish for an aquarium. They are very clever and at times pick at corals, sponges and other reef life. The Flame Angelfish is aggressive towards fishes that are similar in shape and size. They do tend to harm newly added fishes as it is a bit territorial in nature, therefore it is advisable to keep these fishes in a tanks containing at least 30 gallons if kept alone, or else should be kept in 75 gallons if there are more than one fish.
In this genus, the males are larger than females. The Flame Angelfish are born females and as they grow in a group, larger and dominant fishes become males and remaining become females. If a male dies, the next dominant female in the hierarchy becomes a male. It is best way to get a pair by introducing a smaller and a larger fish in a tank together. The Flame Angelfish are very hard to catch and are very much found in scattered localities of tropical waters across the western Pacific Ocean from Belau to the Hawaiian, Marquesas, and Marshall Islands. The Flame Angelfish is omnivorous in nature. They feed on algae and ingest tiny animals living in the same. They like to have large rocks and live rock that helps them to hide themselves and even to pick their foods from the same.
The Flame Angel is a stunning dwarf Angel that is bright red in color with black vertical bands on each side of its body. This fish is undoubtedly the most popular and well known of all dwarf Angels. These fish do very well in aquariums and prefer lots of rockwork to feel comfortable. The Flame Angel should be kept in a tank of 50 gallons or larger, so it'll have ample room to roam. They will spend most of their day grazing algae that grows on live rock. They should not be kept with other dwarf Angels.The Angelfish family is a group of colorful and elegant fish that are adored by both the serious and casual observer. These fish are mainly available to the hobbyist under the Genus Pomacanthus and Centropyge. Pomacanthus Angels are the larger more robust species. The Centropyge Genus are made up of smaller fish that feed primarily on algae from the reef surface. The adult Pomacanthus Angels usually have long dorsal and anal fins and a rounded face. The Pomacanthus Angels will change color quite dramatically from their juvenile stage to adult stage. The Centropyge Angels are found predominantly in the Indo-Pacific while only a couple of species, like the Pygmy and Flameback Angels, are found in the Atlantic and Caribbean. At the same time, the Pomacanthus Angels dominate the Atlantic and Caribbean while in the Indo-Pacific they are less prominent. The Centropyge Angels do not change color dramatically from their juvenile stage to adult stage. These smaller Angels are often seen milling around reefs which they use for both shelter and as a food source. Angelfish are differentiated from Butterflyfish by the small spine that extends from the bottom of their rear gill cover. (A) Alert - This fish cannot be kept with other Angelfish. If you're attempting to purchase two or more Angelfish for the same aquarium it will cause them to fight and most likely one will not survive, so if you're placing an order that has 2 or more Angelfish in it we will have to place the order on hold until we're able to contact you to ensure you're not putting them into the same tank. If you understand they cannot be kept together, but would like to purchase two or more in the same order(separate tanks, group order, etc.) you will need to write in the Special Instructions area at the end of the shopping cart that you understand they cannot be kept together. Tremendous time and effort is put into ensuring the health of these fish and it is very important that you're fully aware two Angelfish should not be kept in the same tank
