Common Name - Herald's / Woodheads Pygmy
Scientific name - Centropyge heraldi / woodheadi
Appearance - Body is completely yellow. If a
black spot occurs at the rear of the dorsal then the species becomes a
Location - Western and central Pacific from Japan to
Comments - I have
never owned a C.heraldi or a C.woodheadi, but if they are like any of the other
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 rock are great. Position
the rock openly so as to create many passages.
