Bluespotted Angelfish (Chaetodontoplus caeruleopunctatus) Care
The Bluespotted Angelfish, Chaetodontoplus caeruleopunctatus, is also known as the Blue-spangled Angelfish and Blue Dust Angelfish. These fish come from the Western Pacific Ocean. The front of the body, including the face, is a tan to gray color that fades into the yellow-brown color that is covered in small blue spots. The tail is yellow and the dorsal fins are outlined in white.
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.
They require a 125 gallon or larger well-established aquarium with numerous hiding places and large amounts of live rock for grazing. The Bluespotted angelfish is typically peaceful and should be kept with nonaggressive tankmates.
Bluespotted Angelfish are only considered reef-safe with caution because it may nip at soft corals, stony corals, and mantles of clams.
