Photo Of The Week - Aquaculture Flame Angelfish (Centropyge loriculus)
Our ever popular Aquaculture Flame Angelfish is back in our livestock and in limited quantities. Its popularity is largely due to it being a triple threat. And by that I mean that it has a bold appearance to draw the attention of any passerby, it is aquacultured and its husbandry is easy. All of which make this angel an excellent pet for any aquarist. In the wild, the Flame Angel is found hiding in reefs and swimming around to graze on algae. With this being said, provide its new home with a sandy substrate and recreate caves using live rocks. The live rocks will serve the Flame Angel in double duty for it will provide it with a hiding place and extra nutritious food when it grazes on it. This angel can be kept as a single fish or with other non-aggressive fish. It can do well in a reef aquarium as long as it is kept well feed otherwise it may nip at the tissue of coral polyps. To maintain it in optimal health feed it dry flakes or frozen foods.
