Very common on the Great Barrier Reef, the Coral Beauty Angelfish is also known as the Twospined or Dusky Angelfish. The body and head are a deep royal blue, highlighted with an iridescent orange to yellow. The Coral Beauty Angelfish is one of the easiest angels to care for.
It requires a 30 gallon or larger tank with lots of hiding places and live rock for grazing. Not a good reef dweller, the Coral Beauty Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates).

The diet of the Coral Beauty Angelfish should consist of Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other quality meaty foods.

Bought the fish

Post  thierry on Thu Jul 08, 2010 12:55 pm

Through one of the forums I'm a member of I noticed this fish. The person selling it did so because the whole aquarium was going to be sold after one of their anemones died ejecting a toxin into the aquarium which they couldn't get out anymore.
To be sure I inserted the fish into the aquarium without adding the water.

In the pictures below you can see the aquarium how it used to be with them, the fish are hard to see in the picture unfortunately.

On sale

Post  thierry on Tue Jul 20, 2010 3:30 pm

Because of the fact that he is suspected of eating the Xenia we are going to sell him. Asked 20 euro for him or trade for corals.

Angelfish sold, tank rebuild

Post  thierry on Fri Aug 06, 2010 11:06 am

We sold him, it was hard to catch it because it kept hiding underneath the rocks. So we had to clear the whole aquarium to get him. Unfortunately his new owners don't keep a journal so we won't be seeing any updates on this fish.
