Multicolor Angelfish or Pastel Pygmy Angelfish
The Multicolor Angelfish (Centropyge Multicolor), also known as the Pastel Pygmy Angelfish or Many-colored Angelfish, is pale peach-orange to yellow. Black speckles on a background of blue highlight an area just behind the eyes. The dorsal and anal fins are blue-black while the caudal fin is yellow. In bright contrast to its other colors, there is a horizontal swatch of silvery-white from mid-body to the caudal fin. It grows to a size of 3.54″ inches in length.
The Multicolor Angelfish or Pastel Pygmy Angelfish needs a minimum of a 70 gallon tank with lots of hiding places and live rock for grazing on microalgae. It does best in subdued lighting, since in the wild, it is a deep-water swimmer. Not a good reef dweller, the Multicolor Angelfish or Pastel Pygmy Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles. It is sensitive to copper-based medications.
