Centropyge acanthops - The Flameback Angelfish is a popular dwarf angelfish species with deep blue coloration and bright orange on the face and back.
Adult Flameback Angelfish ideally should be housed in an aquarium of 55 gallons or more. This species is territorial with its own kind and other dwarf angels, but is compatible with large angelfish species. Captive bred dwarf angelfish may be kept in pairs or sometimes groups with caution if added to a large aquarium at the same time.
This dwarf angelfish species grows to only 3” max and reef safe "with caution." Feeding a variety of foods frequently can help prevent the fish from picking on certain corals or clams in the aquarium. We recommend a varied diet and frequent feedings including angelfish blend frozen foods, Easy Reefs DKI pellets and Masstick. They are a curious fish and will regularly pick at rockwork for sponges and algae to munch on between feedings. Feeding on DKI 0.8mm, C1 and C2 pellet and Hikari Spirulina Brine Shrimp.
