This popular and hardy member of the Pygmy Angelfish family is one of the best species to keep in the home aquarium. Staying small, no more than 3” at maturity, these colorful little fish dazzle with brilliant blue bodies and golden yellow faces. They tend to be rather cryptic, darting in and out of live rock as they forage. Regarded as reef safe with caution, they’re not known to be particularly irritating to corals or clams. Our captive bred specimens are raised exclusively on a diet of pellets after being weaned off live zooplankton. Its best to keep the Cherub Angelfish singly, or in pairs only in the tanks larger than 75 gallons.
