SKU: AO3974Categories: Angel Fish, Saltwater Fish

The Bicolor Angelfish, also known as the Two-colored Angelfish or Oriole Angelfish, is considered by many as the most visually striking dwarf or pygmy angelfish from the Centropyge group. It has a vibrant yellow color on the front half of its body and a deep blue shade on the back half. A splash of deep blue extends upward vertically from the eye to the top of the head, and the tail is yellow. To provide a suitable living environment for the Bicolor Angelfish, a minimum of a 70-gallon tank with plenty of hiding places and live rock for grazing is recommended. However, it is not recommended for a reef tank as it has a tendency to nip at stony and soft corals as well as clam mantles. The Bicolor Angelfish is hermaphroditic and very difficult to breed in captivity. Additionally, there is no distinguishable difference in color between male and female individuals. The ideal diet for this fish should consist of Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, and mysis or frozen shrimp.
