Description

Coral Beauty Angelfish Information

Coral Beauty is usually fairly calm, however they can be quite angry with tank mates. If you do not have a big tank, they may be fighting against other dwarfs to claim the territory. They can also be more aggressive with tank mates of smaller sizes (fish or invertebrates) should they be kept in smaller tanks. Give them plenty of live rocks to create hiding areas and they could spend the majority of their time outdoors.

 

Coral Beauty Angelfish Diet

The feeding of the Coral Beauty Angelfish can be challenging and is usually very difficult to tell if it’s a hit or miss species. Some enthusiasts have no difficulty in getting their fish to consume frozen and flake food, whereas some report that they have trouble getting them to eat normal fish food. In any case having plenty of living rocks in the aquarium will provide them with not just places to hide but will also give them a varied diet. They mostly eat algae, and they will consume the algae that grows on the live rock. It might not be the ideal option for your reef aquarium. They’ve been known to bite at corals in lps. If you’re concerned that they’re not eating enough then get dried seaweed from the ocean and attach a veggie clip to put it in the tank. There are seafood angelfish products available too, and you might like to give them a try.
