The Coral Beauty Angelfish, also known as the Twospined or Dusky Angelfish, is a commonly found species in the Great Barrier Reef. Its body and head have a deep royal blue color with a highlighted iridescent orange to yellow hue. The Coral Beauty Angelfish is considered to be one of the most low-maintenance species of angelfish.
It requires a tank with a minimum size of 70 gallons with plenty of hiding places and live rock for grazing. However, it is not suitable for reef aquariums as it is prone to nip at sessile invertebrates such as stony and soft corals.
The diet of the Coral Beauty Angelfish should include Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other meaty foods of high quality.
