Scientific Name: Centropyge loricula
Care Level: Moderate
Size: Up to 4 inches
Approximate Purchase Size: 2 to 3 inches
Temperament: They can be aggressive with others, especially other dwarf marine angelfishes. It's not the best choice for a reef tank because they are known to nip lps corals.
Aquarium Size: 55 gallon minimum, preferably larger.
Tank Mates: Use caution when selecting tank mates. You may have better results if this is the last fish placed in the tank. You may still see some aggression with other fish that are the same size or smaller. These fish are not necessarily reef aquarium safe because they will nip LPS corals and may pick on smaller invertebrates.
Reef Tank Compatible?: Use caution if you have clams since it has been reported that they may nip at them. Otherwise, they could be a nice addition to help with algae control in a small way.
