Care Level: Easy
Temperament: Semi-Aggressive
Diet: Omnivore
Reef Safe: Yes -With Caution
Minimum Tank Size: 50
Max Size: 4 inches
The Flame Angelfish, Centropyge loriculus, is a brilliant red/orange color with vertical black lines and electric blue edging on the fins and a translucent tail. Due to aggression towards other Angelfish they are best kept singly but will do well with other fish.

They are not reef safe, as they will nip at soft and stony polyp corals, sessile invertebrates and clam mantles. Diet should include a variety of spirulina, marine algae, seaweed, high quality angelfish preparations, mysis and brine shrimp, 3 times daily.

My flame angel has more yellow than this specimen. Brilliantly colored.

Healthy specimen. Not as red as one I had gotten before from Sri Lanka(?). But unlike the earlier one that died within a week, this was a healthy fis. He kept wanting to jump out of the bag before full acclimation. Doing well so far.

We love our Flame Angelfish. We have had him for about four months now, and he is doing super. His colors are so florescent, you can see him from across our office. Our employees and customers always remark on how striking he is. He gets along with all of his tank mates, and readily takes flake food, algae tablets and frozen mysis and spirulina cubes. We love him!

We have had our Flame Angelfish for about three months now. He is doing super, and is a hardy little eater. He has grown to about 2.5 inches, and is just a spectacular neon orange color that can be spotted from across the room. He also gets along well, with all of the other tank mates.

Such a beautiful fish. Have wanted one for a while now and finally got one. Peaceful and adds a lot of color to the tank.

My red flame angelfish arrived dead. Saltwaterfish honored their promise of a replacement. Just have to send a picture of the dead fish on a white background. I'm enjoying this fish. Pretty, easy to care and nonaggressive.

The Flame Angel I received acclimated quickly and gets along with my mccosker's flasher wrasse and Lenny my Lawnmower Blenny. He also immediately took to eating from a baster. I don't know if all of them are this good natured, but mine is one happy, healthy critter. I have a 60 Gal. reef tank with live rock and some assorted coral, shrimps and crabs.

This is the first time buying fish from saltwaterfish and I am plesantly surprise at the quality/health of the fish and the speed of delivery. I live in east coast and got this fish shipped from california, I had it delivered early in morning (credit to the fedex) and the fish arrived healthy, active and disease free. Especially with angel fish I am more concerned if they come with any diseases but this fish looks very good. I still put it into my QT process and its eating very well.

Got my order today. All except one fish are very active. I think it may be because the bag it came in seemed to have lost air during transport, but everything else was fine. This particular fish is beautiful. Thanks Saltwaterfish.com. I will definitely be ordering again.

I've had my flame angel from swfish.com for almost three years. The color of this fish is amazing. Tons of personality, swimming in and out of the tiniest crevices in the live rock. They enjoy algae sheets, as well as meaty foods. Overall an A+.
