Yellow Angelfish (Centropyge heraldi) Care
The Yellow Angelfish, Centropyge heraldi, is also known as the Harald’s Angelfish and False Lemonpeel Angelfish. These fish come from the Pacific Ocean, from Taiwan south to the Great Barrier Reef. The entire body is a bright yellow color and many have a dull, olive-colored patch behind the eye.
These fish are omnivores and require a diet including marine algae, mysis and brine shrimp, and angelfish food. They should be fed a couple of times a day, when underfed, they tend to nip at corals and invertebrates.
Colin’s Angelfish do best in an aquarium that is at least 70 gallons or more and has plenty of live rock to graze on and hide in. They do not do well with other species of dwarf angelfish or fish that are similar in size or appearance to themselves.
They are considered reef safe with caution because they have been known to nip at clam mantles and corals.
