Common Name  -  Keyhole Angelfish

Scientific name  -  Centropyge Tibicen

Appearance  -  Black body with a vertical white spot just behind the head, anal and pelvic fins are yellow. As the fish matures a thin blue line develops around the edge of the dorsal and tail fins. Specimens are generally 2 inches.

Location  -  Quite widely spread throughout the western Pacific from Japan through the Philippine Islands to Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

Comments  -  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. They are generally collected in lagoon areas rich with corals and rock rubble. Tanks with live or decorative rock are great. Position the rock openly so as to create many passages.
