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
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.
