Not that particular one, but the Dwarf angels are much less risky than full angelfish.

I've had a couple of Centropyge dwarf Angels, Coral Beauty being one, she never nipped a thing. Other than fish several times her size who didn't mind their own business...  :grin:

They pick off Amphipods, etc and so compete with slow grazers like Mandarinfish and butterflyfish for food.

That particular one on LiveAquaria mentions it liking subdued lighting, so if you're planning powerful LEDs for stony corals, you might want to look at some of the other dwarf angels, which don't mention subdued lighting.

Yep that's true, I was on there looking at the description, also saw some in reef tanks which was funny as like you said prefer subdued lighting. So got me thinking if people had them in their tanks.

As has been said can be a dream or a nightmare,i had a Lemonpeel eat my red sea xenia , and a Emperor wipe out every SPS and LPS in this tank  6 months ago.


Corals Beautys IME are both beautiful and ive never had a problem with one. I managed to have 4x centropygie in the 6 footer , but they were all introduced at the same time AND i was lucky.


check out C.Nox ..deportment  balance is stunning even tho as the name suggests its black .
Do not mock the snake because it has no horns.For who is to say that one day it may become a dragon,as one just man may become an army...Water Margin.

if you were to have one in a reef sustem it'd probably spend most of its time in the shade, only breaking cover to move to another spot in the tank, and you'd probably see more of it while the lights are ramping up or down.

I've never had one, and never seen this fish before, but I too own a coral beauty, it eats algae and mixes with tangs which are much bigger.
I should really sort this out!!

Thanks ive studied it some more, as much as I like it, its a deep water angel, another one that shouldn't really be for sale unless you don't have much lighting over your tank.
