    Centropyge heraldi

    Scientific Name: Centropype heraldi

    Common Names: Herald’s Angelfish (False Lemonpeel Angelfish)

    Care Level: Relatively difficult

    Adult Size: 3.9in

    pH Range: 8.1 – 8.3

    Temperature Range: (F/C) 77-79F/25-26C

    Specific Gravity/Hardness Range: 1.023-1.026

    Origin/Habitat: Western and South Pacific

    Temperament/Behaviour: Moderately Peaceful

    Compatible Tank mates: Gobies, Blennies, Clownfishes, Cardinalfishes.

    Diet: Varied diet, containing Spirulina and marine algae, as well as mysis shrimp and other high-quality meaty fare.

    Tank Size For Adult: 30gal (114l)

    Narrative: Not suitable for the reef aquarium. May nip at large-polyped stony corals, zoanthids, and tridacnid clam mantles. May also eat some soft coral polyps. Like C flavissima, this species can be difficult to feed and will slowly waste away in aquariums that fail to provide ample opportunities for its constant picking and grazing. It will do best if house in a tank with live rock and/or profuse microalgae growth. Usually not aggressive toward fish tankmates, with the possible exception of related dwarf angelfish species. A male-female pair can be housed together in a medium-sized aquarium (75gal[284l]).

    Centropyge loricula

    Scientific Name: Centropype loricula

    Common Names: Flame Angelfish

    Care Level: Relatively easy

    Adult Size: 3.9in

    pH Range: 8.1 – 8.3

    Temperature Range: (F/C) 77-79F/25-26C

    Specific Gravity/Hardness Range: 1.023-1.026

    Origin/Habitat: Western, South and Central Pacific

    Temperament/Behaviour: Moderately aggressive

    Compatible Tank mates: Gobies, Blennies, Clownfishes, Cardinalfishes.

    Diet: Varied diet, containing Spirulina and marine algae, as well as mysis shrimp and other high-quality meaty fare.

    Tank Size For Adult: 30gal (114l)

    Narrative: Not suitable for the reef aquarium. May nip at large-polyped stony corals, zoanthids, and tridacnid clam mantles. May also eat some soft coral polyps. A flashy and justifiably popular species, this dwarf angelfish has long been considered a durable aquarium choice. (Sadly in recent years some individuals have failed to survive more than a month; the reason for these mortalities is not known, although collection, or shipping problems are suspected by some observers). Can be aggressive toward members of its own genus, as well as toward fishes with similar shape or behaviour if they are introduced after it has become established. To fit into a relatively peaceful community setting, it should be the last fish introduced.

    Centropyge potteri

    Scientific Name: Centropype potteri

    Common Names: Potter’s Angelfish

    Care Level: Relatively difficult

    Adult Size: 5.1in

    pH Range: 8.1 – 8.3

    Temperature Range: (F/C) 77-79F/25-26C

    Specific Gravity/Hardness Range: 1.023-1.026

    Origin/Habitat: Hawaiian Islands and Johnston atoll

    Temperament/Behaviour: Moderately aggressive

    Compatible Tank mates: Gobies, Blennies, Clownfishes, Cardinalfishes.

    Diet: Varied diet, containing Spirulina and marine algae, as well as mysis shrimp and other high-quality meaty fare.

    Tank Size For Adult: 55gal (208l)

    Narrative: Not suitable for the reef aquarium. May nip at large-polyped stony corals, zoanthids, and tridacnid clam mantles. A distinctive Hawaiian endemic species, this is a popular fish that is reasonably hardy if placed in an appropriate aquarium setting. It should be provided with plenty of hiding places, preferably in live rock, which will also afford a natural substrate where it can forage for algae and tiny invertebrate life forms. It may behave aggressively toward congeners and fishes introduced after it has become established, especially in smaller tanks. It can be reluctant to feed initially, and may starve in new or barren tanks, but will usually accept frozen preparations after a few days and will pick at diatoms on the glass and décor.

    Centropyge tibicen

    Scientific Name: Centropype tibicen

    Common Names: Keyhole Angelfish

    Care Level: Relatively difficult

    Adult Size: 7.5in

    pH Range: 8.1 – 8.3

    Temperature Range: (F/C) 77-79F/25-26C

    Specific Gravity/Hardness Range: 1.023-1.026

    Origin/Habitat: Eastern Indian Ocean and Western pacific

    Temperament/Behaviour: Moderately aggressive

    Compatible Tank mates: Gobies, Blennies, Clownfishes, Cardinalfishes.

    Diet: Varied diet, containing Spirulina and marine algae, as well as mysis shrimp and other high-quality meaty fare.

    Tank Size For Adult: 55gal (208l)

    Narrative: Not suitable for the reef aquarium. May attack some soft corals and nip at large-polyped stony corals, zoanthids, and tridacnid clam mantles. Bold and growing larger than other Centropyge angelfishes, this is a durable aquarium fish that will accept a wide range of aquarium foods. It may behave aggressively toward other pygmy angelfishes and fishes added to the tank after it has become established. Will browse on filamentous algae and diatoms growing on the aquarium décor. Large males often have a pleasing bluish hue.

    pH Range: 8.1 – 8.3

    Temperature Range: (F/C) 77-79F/25-26C

    Specific Gravity/Hardness Range: 1.023-1.026

    Origin/Habitat: Australia and Papua New Guinea

    Temperament/Behaviour: Moderately aggressive

    Chaetodontoplus mesoleucus

    Scientific Name: Chaetodontoplus mesoleucus

    Common Names: Vermiculated Angelfish (Singapore Angelfish)

    Care Level: Relatively difficult

    Adult Size: 6.7in

    pH Range: 8.1 – 8.3

    Temperature Range: (F/C) 77-79F/25-26C

    Specific Gravity/Hardness Range: 1.023-1.026

    Origin/Habitat: Western Pacific

    Temperament/Behaviour: Moderately peaceful

    Compatible Tank mates: Gobies, Blennies, Clownfishes, Cardinalfishes.

    Diet: Feed frozen preparations that contain Spirulina algae, as well as mysis shrimp and/or finely shaved fresh or frozen shrimp. It will browse on filamentous algae and diatoms growing on the aquarium décor.

    Tank Size For Adult: 75gal (284l)

    Narrative: poses a moderate risk to large-polyped stony corals. May also eat some soft coral polyps and nip at zoanthids. Butteflylike in appearance, and somewhat of an enigma for aquarists, this species is a challenge to keep. Some individuals adapt quickly to aquarium life, while others hide constantly and never feed. Provide a quietly situated aquarium with lots of hiding places and nonaggressive tankmates, and the chances of success are increased. Live rock and a good crop of macro algae (such as Caulerpa) or microalgae may also facilitate acclimation.

    Genicanthus lamarck

    Scientific Name: Genicanthus lamarck

    Common Names: Lamarck’s Angelfish

    Care Level: Relatively easy

    pH Range: 8.1 – 8.3

    Temperature Range: (F/C) 77-79F/25-26C

    Specific Gravity/Hardness Range: 1.023-1.026

    Origin/Habitat: Indo-west-Pacific

    Narrative: One of the best angelfishes for the reef aquariums, because it poses no threat to stony or soft corals. Elegant and interesting, this angelfish readily adapts to life in captivity, accepting aquarium fare and acclimating to the conditions found in a well-maintained tank. These fish a re active and spend most daylight hours swimming about in mid-water; they need plenty of swimming room. They are not overly aggressive, but may chase small, docile planktivores, such as anthias, fairy wrasses, flasher wrasses, and fire gobies. Will usually ignore other members of the angelfish family. Can be kept in pairs or in small aggregations in large tanks; keep only one male per aquarium.

    Genicanthus melanospilos

    Scientific Name: Genicanthus melanospilos

    Common Names: Blackspot Angelfish

    Care Level: Relatively easy

    Adult Size: 7.1in

    pH Range: 8.1 – 8.3

    Temperature Range: (F/C) 77-79F/25-26C

    Specific Gravity/Hardness Range: 1.023-1.026

    Origin/Habitat: Western Pacific

    Temperament/Behaviour: Moderately peaceful

    Compatible Tank mates: Gobies, Blennies, Clownfishes, Cardinalfishes, Triggers.

    Diet: Feed a varied diet, including finely shaved fresh or frozen shrimp, frozen brine shrimp, Mysis shrimp, and frozen preparations containing Spirulina algae. Will browse on filamentous algae and diatoms growing in the aquarium.

    Tank Size For Adult: 100gal (379l)

    Narrative: One of the best angelfishes for the reef aquariums, because it poses no threat to stony or soft corals. There are dramatic differences between males and females which make an interesting display of sexual dimorphism. This species readily adapts to aquarium conditions and foods. These fish are constantly active, and they need plenty of swimming space. Not overly aggressive, but they may chase small, docile planktivores, while ignoring other fish species, including other angelfishes. Males fight with other Genicanthus spp, especially those similar in colouration. Can be kept in pairs or in small aggregations in larger tanks; keep only one male per aquarium.
