The Coral Beauty Angel, Centropyge bispinosus, also known as the Twospined Angelfish, Dusky Angelfish, or just Coral Beauty, features various hues of dark blue, orange, purple, and yellow combining to make a shimmering effect. Care should be had when netting the Coral Beauty as its dorsal spines can easily get tangled - a bucket is suggested. The Coral Beauty can reach up to 4 inches, and is best kept in a tank no less than 55 gallons, along with plenty of live rock with natural algae growth, as it likes to graze on algae in between meals. If you would like to keep more than one per tank, be sure to have a large enough aquarium and introduce them at the same time, to limit territorial aggression. They do not live well with other Angelfish otherwise. They Coral Beauty does do very little or no harm to invertebrates, although they are better about it than other Angelfish, they may occasionally peck at tubeworms or coral polyps. But if they are properly fed they will often ignore corals altogether. The Coral Beauty is a hardy fish, and will eat an omnivorous diet of various types of fresh and dried marine algae, spirulina enriched foods, mysis shrimp, shaved shrimp and other high-quality meaty foods, angelfish preparations, and flake or pellet foods as well. Overall, the Coral Beauty Angel is a staple among home aquarists as it is one of the most attractive dwarf angelfish species out there. The Coral Beauty thrives in a temperature range of 72-78?? F and a pH of 8.1-8.4.
My Coral Beauty Angelfish is beautiful. My shipment was delayed an extra day when FedEx's plane broke down but she was just fine when she arrived -- that's shows you how healthy she was to begin with. She has been eating well since she arrived and I couldn't be happier.
