Common Name - Shepard Pygmy Angelfish
Scientific name - Centropyge Sherpardi
Appearance - Burnt orange body, upper half is
darker than the lower half, with dark vertical bars. The dorsal, anal fins are
edged with a brilliant bright blue, and the tail is translucent.
Location - Western Pacific from Japan to the Izu
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
are collected from the open areas of the outer reefs often areas with large
patches of sand. Tanks with live or decorative rock are
great. Position the rock openly so as to create many passages.
