COMMON NAME: Midnight Angelfish

OTHERS: Midnight Angel

SCIENTIFIC: Centropyge nox (Bleeker, 1853)

MAXIMUM LENGTH:3.5 in (9cm)

NATURAL LOCATION: Western and Indo-Pacific

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

SOCIAL: Somewhat shy, can be aggressive to other Centropyge Angels

DISTICTIVE CHARACTERISTICS:Has the same shape as other Centropyge but this fish is 100% black. An unique feature is the fin pattern in the rear has all the fins meeting uniformly, thus making the fish look completely round.

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

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

CAPTIVE CARE: It will do best if housed in a tank with live rock and/or profuse microalgae growth. Usually not toward fish tankmates, with the exception of other dwarf angelfish species. A male-female can be housed together in a medium sized aquarium.
