Centropyge loricula- Flame Angelfish- Approx. 2" Specimen


Members of the genus Centropyge, known collectively as Dwarf Angelfish, typically reach a maximum of five to six inches in length. In nature, they typically inhabit rocky reef areas with moderate to heavy coral growth.

Dwarf Angelfishes are generally peaceful, except with members of their own genus. It’s typically “one to a tank”, unless you start them off in groups as juveniles in an aquarium large enough to create separate territories. Ideally, an aquarium housing Dwarf Angelfishes should have abundant live rock, which provides both foraging and hiding places for the fish.

Although some individuals specimens can be kept in reef aquariums without nipping at corals and sessile invertebrates, it should be generally assumed that Centropyge are somewhat of a risk to keep in reef aquariums. It’s your call!

Dwarf Angelfishes are typically omnivores, with a good portion of their diet consisting of algal growth that they rasp from rocks. This may be supplemented with high quality frozen foods, such as mysis and enriched frozen brine shrimp.
