I love this cute little Blue Angelfish! featured

Comments These little dwarf angelfish which only grow to about a maximum of 2" are very easy to care for. They eat many common aquarium foods, preferably frozen or fresh. They are known to be "reef safe but with caution". In my experience, he hasn't nipped at a single piece of coral in my tank. I do keep him well fed, that keeps him steered away from looking for extra food. ALthough he does graze on algae all day long. Its so much fun to see him swim because he is very active and is an exciting fish to watch. He was the last fish I added into my tank becuase they are semi-aggressive. And you usually don't see alot of growth because they don't do alot of it. They stay very small and are one of the smallest pygmy angelfishes. They can be kept with one other of its kind if it is bought in a pair, but if bought seperate or at different times then they will most likely fight, to the death. But in very large aquariums, multiple fish can be kept. My cherub is in a 20g, which I believe is the very minimum it should be kept in.


Liked about it I love the bright colors it has. The bright blue body and the yellow face add a awesome pop of color in any aquarium. When using only actinic lights, the floruescent color of him on the tail and around the eyes really pop. I liked that my specific fish doesn't eat or nibble on any coral. Although it is known for them to gain an interest in inverts later in life. I also love his activness. If you are looking for a fish that will be constatly swimming and fun to watch, this is the perfect fish!


Didn't like These fish are somewhat to be known as aggressive and territorial. But as long as you add him as one of the last fish in your aquarium you will be just fine.

I recommend this fish for all tanks that are 20g and above.

nice, smaller dwarf angel

Comments One of the smallest of all the dwarf angels, this is a good choice for most aquariums over about 30 gallons. These fish are generally found throughout the Caribbean, and are often available in the hobby for under $30. They take to captivity well and add a good flash of color to most any aquarium.


Liked about it These are small fish that don't require any specific attention. If healthy specimens are found, there shouldn't be any issue acclimating them to your tank. They are one of the least likely fish to pester clams or other corals (though that's no guarantee), and they will pair up in the home aquarium. They're a good addition to most tanks.


Didn't like The cherub angel can be a bit aggressive, especially towards other dwarfs in smaller tanks (unless it's a paired fish). Also, if you do find the fish you're keeping starts taking a liking towards clams or corals, it's going to be rather challenging to catch. These fish are incredibly quick and know how to stay out of trouble, so you may have to tear the tank apart to get it out.

Best (dwarf) angelfish to live with peaceful fish

Comments The smaller size of the dwarf cherub angelfish does not detract from its attractive appearance with a deep purple body and head that is as golden as if it were guilded with gold foil. In addition, this semi-aggressive fish will work better in a tank with peaceful fish.


Liked about it The dwarf cherub angelfish is very attractive adding color and movement to the display tank. It prefers to graze and will eat a variety of foods including spirulina flakes, marine flake food, frozen mysis shrimp, and the occasional treat of a sponge-eater's food like Tenera Red. Its nature is to spend time in protected rock caves and overhangs, but it actively explores the entire tank periodically throughout the day. Individual fish may differ, but my experience has been that the dwarf cherub angelfish is not aggressive toward larger, peaceful tank mates and leaves corals along when well fed.


Didn't like It cannot be kept peacefully in groups of its own kind. The full grown size is relatively small (about 2") which is a shame due to its extraordinarily intense coloration. Some individuals may develop a taste for coral which makes them uncertain for reef tanks.
