DISTICTIVE CHARACTERISTICS: Golden color surrounded by shades of purple. Amount of each color varies from fish to fish.

REEF AQUARIUM BEHAVIOR: Will nip at large-polyped stony corals, zoanthids, and calm mantles. May also eat soft coral polyps.

CARE IN CAPTIVITY: The Coral Beauty is a very popular species of the Centropyge. It is widely available, hardy, highly compatible, and has a unique gorgeous color scheme. Because it is readily available and popular, it is fairly inexpensive.
