Common Name - Resplendent Angelfish
Scientific name - Centropyge Resplendens
Appearance - Beautiful deep metallic blue body
with a yellow strip running from the tip of the nose and mouth across the upper
dorsal. The tail fin is also a continuation of the yellow strip. A thin blue
line runs along the edge of the dorsal fin.
Location - Wild specimens are found only at
Ascension Island, half way between South America and Africa.
Comments - Since the Gulf War there have been
only 3 or 4 collection trips to this Island. Tank raised specimens are now
available through Reef
Culture Technologies ( www.rcthawaii.com
Once past acclimation this fish is very hardy and eats
well. As with all centropyge it will feed on flake foods but will do much better
on a variety of small bite-size frozen foods, such as mysis shrimp. These fish
enjoy having access to hiding places. Tanks with live or decorative coral and rock are
great. Position the rock openly so as to create many passages.
