SKU: 463Categories: Angel Fish, Saltwater Fish

The Bicolor Angelfish, also called the Two-colored Angelfish or Oriole Angelfish, is regarded as the most striking of the Centropyge group of pygmy or dwarf angelfish. Its vibrant coloration is a deep blue on the posterior half of its body and a bright yellow on the anterior half, with a splash of blue extending upward vertically from the eye to the top of the head. The tail is also yellow. To thrive, the Bicolor Angelfish requires a minimum of a 70-gallon tank with plenty of hiding places and live rock for grazing. However, it is not a suitable inhabitant for reef tanks as it is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles. The Bicolor Angelfish is hermaphroditic, making it difficult to breed in an aquarium, and males and females have no distinguishable differences in color. Its diet should consist of Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, and mysis or frozen shrimp.
