Multicolor Angelfish

The Multicolor Angelfish, also known as the Pastel Pygmy Angelfish or Many-colored Angelfish, is pale peach-orange to yellow. Black speckles on a background of blue highlight an area just behind the eyes. The dorsal and anal fins are blue-black while the caudal fin is yellow. In bright contrast to its other colors, there is a horizontal swatch of silvery-white from mid-body to the caudal fin.

Requirements
The Multicolor Angelfish needs a minimum of a 70 gallon tank with lots of hiding places and live rock for grazing on microalgae. It does best in subdued lighting, since in the wild, it is a deep-water swimmer. 

Suggestions
The Multicolor Angelfish may nip at fleshy stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles. It is sensitive to copper-based medications.

Feeding
The diet of the Multicolor Angelfish should include Spirulina, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other high-quality meaty items.

  1. I bought one of these last year and it is still the king of my tank. Really lovely fish, just don’t keep it with any other dwarf angels and it can get aggressive.
