Shepard’s Pygmy Angelfish (Centropyge shepardi) Care
The Shepard’s Pygmy Angelfish, Centropyge shepardi, is also known as the Mango Angelfish and the Shepard’s Angelfish. These fish come from the Western Pacific Ocean, from the southern tip of Japan southwest to the Marshall, Marianas, and Gilbert Islands. The body is a burnt orange/mango color with its upper half slightly darker than the lower half with dark vertical bars. The dorsal and anal fins of males are edged in blue and the tail on both males and females is somewhat transparent.
Shepard’s Pygmy Angelfish are omnivores and primarily feed on algae, but their diet may be complimented angelfish food and a variety of small meaty foods. They do best in an aquarium that is at least 50 gallons or more and has plenty of live rock to graze on and hide in. These fish are hardy and generally peaceful; they should be kept with non-aggressive tankmates.They do not do well with other angelfish or fish that are similar in size or appearance to themselves.
These fish are not very common in the aquarium hobby because they are rarely imported. They are considered reef safe with caution because they have been known to nip at clam mantles and corals.
