The African Flameback Angel is similar to the Caribbean cousin in its bright orange and blue coloration, with the only difference being that the African variety has a clear caudal fin rather than a blue one. This is a great dwarf Angelfish to add to smaller fish only tank. Be sure to provide plenty of rockwork for this fish to pick at. Caution is needed when adding to a reef tank, as they will pick at fleshy inverts. Do not mix with other Centropyge Angels as they are prone to fighting. This fish will love a varied meaty diet with Vit C pellets mixed in.
