The Rock Beauty Angelfish is commonly referred as Rocky Beasty, Corn Sugar, Coshubba, and Yellow Nanny. Juvenile Rock Beauty Angelfish typically stays near fire corals and are known to hide inside shells. It is found diurnal, i.e. it is active during the day and rests during the night. The Rock Beauty Angelfish is a pretty sensitive creature, especially if not kept on a suitable diet. It needs a 40 gallon aquarium when it reaches a length of 3-4 inches. The Rock Beauty Angelfish needs a well decorated aquarium with plenty of hiding spots, e.g. caves and crevices to give an opportunity to carry out its natural browsing behavior in captivity. Introduce a lot of live rocks in the tank that encourages the growth of algae on it, so that it can feed on it. The Rock Beauty Angelfish should not be combined with aggressive fish, such as triggers. It is very territorial in nature and keeping it with other marine angelfish is risky. The Rock Beauty Angelfish thrives well in a temperature range of 75-79 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.2-8.4. It is very important to have a varied diet, that may include algae based food and sea food preparations that contain vegetables, e.g. shrimps mixed with spinach. The Rock Beauty Angelfish spends most of the time in searching for food in the tank. Young specimens are always female and have the capacity to change into males when it gets older. Generally, it will be seen toppling over the corals or sponges, that is why the Rock Beauty Angelfish is considered a reef safe but with caution.
(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.The Angelfish family is a group of colorful and elegant fish that are adored by boththe serious and casual observer. These fish are mainly available to the hobbyistunder the Genus Pomacanthus and Centropyge. Pomacanthus Angels are the larger morerobust species. The Centropyge Genus are made up of smaller fish that feed primarilyon algae from the reef surface. The adult Pomacanthus Angels usually have longdorsal and anal fins and a rounded face. The Pomacanthus Angels will change colorquite dramatically from their juvenile stage to adult stage. The Centropyge Angelsare found predominantly in the Indo-Pacific while only a couple of species, like thePygmy and Flameback Angels, are found in the Atlantic and Caribbean. At the sametime, the Pomacanthus Angels dominate the Atlantic and Caribbean while in theIndo-Pacific they are less prominent. The Centropyge Angels do not change colordramatically from their juvenile stage to adult stage. These smaller Angels areoften seen milling around reefs which they use for both shelter and as a foodsource. Angelfish are differentiated from Butterflyfish by the small spine thatextends from the bottom of their rear gill cover.
