    COMMON NAME: Fisher's Angelfish

    OTHERS: None

    SCIENTIFIC: Centropyge fisheri (Snyder, 1904)

    ADULT SIZE: 2.4 in (6cm)

    NATURAL LOCATIONS: Johnston Atoll and Hawaiian Islands

    MINIMUM AQUARIUM SIZE: 20 gal. (76L).

    SOCIAL: Less aggressive than many of its relatives. It likes lots of hiding places to hide (playing peek-a-boo) and it will dash from one to the other. Will only be aggressive in smaller aquariums with docile tankmates.

    DISTICTIVE CHARACTERISTICS: Much smaller than most Centropyge and is colored in a golden-orangeish gradient.

    DIET: Varied diet, containing Spirulina and marine algae, as well as mysid shrimp and other high-quality meaty foods. Feed 2-3 times daily and, ideally, provide live rock for constant grazing.

    REEF AQUARIUM BEHAVIOR: Although less likely than its cousins, it may nip at large-polyped stony corals, zoanthids, and tridacnid calm mantles. May also eat soft coral polyps.

    CARE IN CAPTIVITY: Likes areas with coral rubble and lots of hiding places in the Live Rock. The fish will feed on diatoms on glass and rock.
