The Bicolor Angelfish is a beautiful fish. Its stunning yellow body color is contrasted with vivid royal blue color on its back half that gives it a striking coloration. Due to this stunning duo pattern, the Bicolor Angelfish is named as bicolor angelfish. The Bicolor Angel is a good sized dwarf fish reaching up to 5.9 inches. The Bicolor Angelfish should be provided with lots of hiding places and a diet including vegetable matter, worms and small crustaceans. They are aggressive for a dwarf angelfish, especially in a tank under 75 gallons. The Bicolor Angelfishes are found mostly in Indo-Pacific from east Africa to the Soamoan and Phoenix Island. There are several names for this fish such as Black and Gold Angelfish, Blue and Gold Angelfish, Two-colored Angelfish, and the Pacific Rock Beauty Angelfish. The other common name, Oriole Angelfish or Oriole Dwarf Angel, comes from the Medieval Latin word oriolus which means golden. The Bicolor Angelfish is moderately difficult to keep, but with proper care it can be kept peacefully. It is one of the most aggressive dwarf angelfish and therefore is not suggested to keep with other aggressive fishes. The Bicolor Angelfish is very difficult to breed in captivity. It doesn?t show any distinctive characteristics that differentiate between male and female. The Bicolor Angelfish is basically a hermaphroditic fish. The Bicolor Angelfish inhabits rubbly areas in lagoons, and on reef slopes and use cervices in the reef for shelter. The appropriate temperature and pH to keep the Bicolor Angelfish healthy is 72-80ø F (22-27ø C) and 8.1-8.4 respectively, which also makes an ideal environment in an aquarium.
