The Cherub Angelfish is also known as the Cherubfish, Pygmy Cherub Angelfish, or Atlantic Pygmy Angelfish. It is a brilliant sapphire-blue with orange highlights to the face.
The Cherub Angelfish requires a 90 litre or larger tank with numerous hiding places and live rock for grazing on microalgae. It may nip at large-polyped stony corals and clam mantles.
The Cherub Angelfish is an aggressive little angelfish, so it is best to never have more than one male per tank, since they may fight to the death. A breeding pair may be kept, and the Cherub Angelfish has been bred in an aquarium with success.
The diet of the Cherub Angelfish should include Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysid or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items. Feed three times daily.
